The 114th Precinct was on hand and has seen success lately with the implementation of the Neighborhood Policing Plan (NPP) program. NPP will allow the officer to become more involved with the community and even compared the NPP to old days of the so-called “beat cop” who canvassed an area for years and everyone in the neighborhood knew their name.

The several hundred in attendance at the August 1 event enjoyed popcorn and hot dogs with soft drinks. Elected officials were also on hand, including NYS Senator Michael Gianaris and Councilman Costa Constantinides, as well 114th Pct. Deputy Inspector Peter Fortune and President of the 114th Precinct Community Council Ann Bruno.

“This event is free for everyone to enjoy and learn about ways to stay safe,” said Bruno. —Jason D. Antos
