Albemarle Neighborhood Association Community Meeting
Thursday, October 4th, 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

For the first time since they began patrolling it in July, the police officers assigned to the Kensington beat will meet with its residents.

At next week's meeting of the Albemarle Neighborhood Association (ANA), share your experiences and your concerns about neighborhood crime and safety with the 66th Precinct's Neighborhood Coordination Officers for Sector D (Kensington), Shawney Chow and Joel Ramirez.

Let the officers get an up-close look at the people who live in the community they serve. Share your thoughts with them about the needs of Kensington's residents.

The boundaries of the area they patrol are 37th Street and McDonald Avenue to the west, Coney Island Avenue to the east, Avenue F and 18th Avenue to the south, and Fort Hamilton Parkway to the north. 

Two additional guest speakers that evening will be our New York City Councilmember, Brad Lander, and his Director of Organizing and Community Engagement, Shahana Hanif.

All Kensington residents, whether or not they're members of ANA, are invited to attend and participate in this free meeting. 

The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 4th, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the Flatbush Jewish Center.

As usual, Foodtown and ANA will provide free refreshments.
