Two years to the day after he arrived at the 68th Precinct, now-Deputy Inspector Joseph Hayward is on the move again — heading to Coney Island where he will take the helm of the 60th Precinct.

Replacing him will be Captain Robert Conwell, who is moving over from the 67th Precinct in East Flatbush, where he served as executive officer.

Hayward will replace Deputy Inspector William Taylor at the 60th Precinct. Taylor — who previously led the 62nd Precinct in Bensonhurst — is being transferred to the Queens narcotics squad. Hayward had been the executive officer at the 60th Precinct prior to assuming the command of the 68th Precinct.

“In my two years as the commanding officer in the 68th Precinct, the officers were deployed to combat narcotics,” Hayward told this paper. “That enforcement led to an 11 percent decrease in crime in 2016, a four percent decrease in 2017, and 2018 has also started with a dramatic reduction in crime.

“The cops worked hard to educate the community about opium addiction, which also contributed to the reduction,” he went on.

“I am sad to leave but I know I am leaving with great friends in this community and I know I made a difference,” he concluded. “The cops and community working hand-in-hand in the 68th Precinct could be a role model for the whole city.”
