Deterring the crime of burglary in Nassau
County and solving those already committed are
specialties of Officer Andrew Fal of the Eighth
Precinct. In 1981, Officer Fal singlehandedly
made three burglary arrests, one of which was
made while he was off duty, and closed out
several Seventh and Eighth Precinct burglaries.
All of these arrests, it should be noted, resulted
from Officer Fal's development of information
both from informants and canvasses made
during routine burglary investigations.
