December 22, 2003 -- The Queens neighborhoods of Corona, Elmhurst and Jackson Heights will get a beefed-up police presence next month to help fight gangs and violent crime.
City Councilman Hiram Monserrate announced the initiative yesterday, saying he had secured the troubled areas an extra 48 on-the-beat officers who will graduate from the Police Academy in January.

"The growing presence of gangs in the area calls for a greater police response," said Monserrate, himself a former cop.

Earlier this year, the councilman helped launch a crime fighting initiative called Operation Impact to increase a police presence at night in the three crime hot-spot neighborhoods which are covered by the 110th and 115th precincts.

Operation Impact has already put more officers on the street from 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. who are especially looking out for gang-related crime, he said.
