CANCELED DUE TO THE WEATHER -- 72ND PRECINCT COMMUNITY COUNCIL WILL MEET WITH WINDSOR TERRACE AND SUNSET PARK RESIDENTS


72nd Precinct Community Council Public Meeting
Tuesday, February 12th, 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

At the 72nd Precinct Community Council's monthly meetings with the public, residents and police officers discuss crime and find out what the precinct is doing to prevent future crimes from occurring. Learn what types of crime have been taking place, their frequency, and why they can happen.

Members of the public are invited to voice their concerns about crime and tell officers what's on their minds: armed robberies, sexual assaults, home break-ins, burglaries in local stores, bank robberies, drivers who are speeding or breaking other laws, stolen bicycles, package theft, and any other crimes.

Windsor Terrace and Sunset Park are within the 72nd Precinct. Everyone who lives or works within the precinct's boundaries is invited to attend Community Council meetings. Contact the Community Affairs officers at (718) 965-6326 if you have any questions.


The next meeting will be on Tuesday, February 12th, from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
