NYPD officers from the 60th Precinct, 61st Precinct, 62nd Precinct, 70th Precinct and Brooklyn South’s Community Affairs Unit converged on Tzar Restaurant (2007 Emmons Avenue) last Thursday, for the first ever Community Awareness Meeting organized by the Be Proud Foundation and the Brighton Beach Business Improvement District.
The event brought together business owners and community leaders from Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach with the police officers, allowing them to express gratitude and discuss local issues one-on-one.
“I strongly believe the NYPD cannot do its job without us, without the community. And the community cannot function without the NYPD,” said Be Proud Executive Director Raisa Chernina.
Brooklyn South’s Community Affairs Unit produced four presentations for the event, providing tips about cell phone safety, bullying, drugs and general crime prevention.
Above is the video on cell phone safety, one the leading crimes across New York City, and the primary factors comprising the sharp rise in robbery rates over the last two years.
Each of the three remaining presentations will be published on Sheepshead Bites once a day this week.
