Deputy Inspector Brian Hennessy, who has been the commanding officer of the 115th Precinct for the past 19 months, is being transferred to a high-crime precinct in the south Bronx.

Hennessy oversaw the 115th Precinct command for all of 2015, a year when there was only one homicide, the lowest reported murder rate for the precinct on record. In 2016, there have been no murders to date.

Crime dropped 4.9 percent in 2015, compared to 2014, according to Hennessy.

Hennessy attributes the success to a combination of “great police work” and an engaged community.

The NYPD has transferred him to the 40th Precinct, which has experienced the biggest increase in crime among all the precincts this year, Hennessy said.

The crime rate is up more than 40 percent for the year through June 19, compared with this time a year ago. There have been nine homicides reported.

“It’s a very busy precinct and it is something I look forward to,” he said.

Hennessy is being replaced by Inspector Michele Irizarry, who has held command at the 10th Precinct in Manhattan, which covers Chelsea and up by the Hudson Yards.

Hennessy held his first command at the 108th precinct, which covers Sunnyside, Woodside and Long Island City, before joining the 115th.

He has spent his entire police career in Queens.
