New community-crime-prevention supervisor at 5th Precinct

As of Dec. 26, Sector Lt. Marie Przynski will be the new 5th Precinct officer supervising Community Crime Prevention/SAFE efforts for the West Calhoun, Linden Hills, East Calhoun, CARAG, Lyndale, East Harriet and Kingfield neighborhoods.

Przynski will replace Brad Sporny, who will be transferred to the 3rd Precinct in Southeast Minneapolis. Sector Lieutenants work with civilian crime-prevention specialists.

Przynski has most recently worked as a professional development unit supervisor for officer training but has been an officer for 21 years. She previously worked as a civilian involved in community policing. She has also been a sector lieutenant with Northeast Minneapolis’ 2nd Precinct and worked for eight years in the North Side.

Przynski will still train officers at the precinct level. For neighborhood issues and concerns, Przynski can be reached at 673-5595.
