The commanding officer of the NYPD’s 105th Precinct has been promoted to the rank of inspector.
Inspector Neteis Gilbert, in her 20th year with the NYPD, was promoted on June 27 in a ceremony at 1 Police Plaza in Manhattan.
Gilbert assumed command of the 105th Precinct in June 2018, taking over when Inspector Jeffrey Schiff was promoted to the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Division.
The precinct has its main headquarters on 222nd Street in Queens Village and a satellite station in Rosedale just north of the Long Island Rail Road station.
The new inspector has had a varied career, including a stint as executive officer in the 105th Precinct back in 2014.
She began her career with the NYPD in Brooklyn’s 79th Precinct and then was transferred to the 103rd in Jamaica.
Gilbert worked in the subways with Transit District 33, which covers Brooklyn. Just prior to her first tour in the 105th, then-Lieutenant Gilbert supervised more than 600 people while assigned to the School Safety Division. Prior to coming back to the 105th last year Gilbert was the commanding officer of Public Service Area 1, which polices public housing projects in Brooklyn’s 60th, 61st, 63rd and 69th precincts.
Gilbert has a bachelor’s degree in law and justice, one master’s in neurophysiology and another in forensics.
Among her innovations since coming back to Queens Village is a registry of private and commercial security cameras, allowing officers to better canvass neighborhoods for possibly useful footage when a crime is committed in a given area.
