The NYPD has named multiple new precinct commanding officers in southern Queens.

Deputy Inspector Brian Bohannon has been assigned as the new commander of the 113th Precinct in South Jamaica, replacing Inspector Jerry O’Sullivan. Bohannon had been commander of the 106th Precinct in South Ozone Park since October 2016.

Bohannon, who joined the NYPD in 2004, is having somewhat of a homecoming. He was a captain serving as executive officer in the 113th when he was named CO of the 106th.

O’Sullivan, who took command of the 113th in September 2017, is heading to the Detective Bureau, according to a statement from Assistant Chief David Barerre, commanding officer of Patrol Borough Queens South, that was posted on the Facebook page of Community Board 12.

 Capt. John Costello will be replacing Bohannon at the 106th.

Deputy Inspector Vincent Tavalaro will take over the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica, moving from the 101st Precinct on the Rockaways.

Fortune, who has been transferred to Patrol Borough Queens South, served as commander of the 103rd since September 2017.
