Good afternoon all ....sorry it took me a while to compile this information but I want to send further information on how the Patrol Districts combat violent crime such as robberies, felony assaults, shootings and also citizen complaints that are brought to the attention of the commander...this is in addition to the support that the Chief of Police has provided via specialized units and the patrol support teams.....
Each district has an established Crime Suppression Team composed of ten to sixteen uniformed officers that address specific issues that the commander focuses on .... Since June these units have been able to
Make 788 arrests
Recovered 79 GUNS
Executed 43 search warrants
Recovered 23 ATVS
Seized/Recovered hundreds of grams of Marijuana, Cocaine, Heroin and PCP
I would like to remind all that each District holds a monthly Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) meeting at their district and at these meetings it is your opportunity to discuss your concerns directly with your Commander and their team.... Also each district has PSA Lieutenants that hold regular community/PSA meetings that can address the concerns in a particular PSA and hold problem solving sessions with those in attendance by involving other agencies and entities for long term issues such as nuisance properties and systemic disorder and crime problems
The schedules and Points of Contact for each are available on our WEBSITE ... also you may inquire through the listserve any additional information you may have

In her highly anticipated new novel, In the Unlikely Event, Judy Blume creates a moving story of three generations of families, friends and strangers, whose lives are profoundly changed by unexpected events. The beloved author of Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret and Summer Sisters discusses her new book and extraordinary career with moderator Samantha Bee.
I favor Bee's intro: "I have to say I'm so thrilled to be here. You know I don't often get starstruck. But tonight is the most profound exception to that rule."
I venture to say I would be squealing like a tween if I were to meet Blume. I loved her books when I was growing up and almost got suspended from middle school for sharing Forever with my friends. My parents prevailed over other parents arguing that at least we were reading. Anyway. Watch the Blume/Bee 92Y Talk. Enjoy.
