NYPD 76 Pct. Build a Block NCO Meeting Sector C

When: May 24, 2018 6:00-7:30 pm

Where: P.S. 676 on Huntington Street

Neighborhood Police Supporting the sector officers and filling out each sector's team are two officers designated as the neighborhood coordination officers (NCOs). The NCOs serve as liaisons between the police and the community, but also as key crime-fighters and problem-solvers in the sector. They familiarize themselves with residents and their problems by attending community meetings with neighborhood leaders and clergy, visiting schools, following up on previous incidents, and using creative techniques and adaptive skills. NCOs are adding a new dimension to the NYPD's crime-fighting capabilities. They function as adjuncts to the local detective squads, responding swiftly to breaking incidents and developing leads and evidence that might have been missed under the old patrol model. Most importantly, they feel a sense of belonging and responsibility that fosters a willingness to do whatever it takes to keep the neighborhood safe and secure. Some of you already know Officers Class and Jovin. Please come out and meet them as well NYPD Crime Prevention Officer. Hope to see all you there.

Red Hook Reporters Teen Workshop

When: Saturdays, from June 2, 2018 until June 30, 2018

 

Red Hook Reporters is a free community-based reporting project connecting youth to local leaders and institutions, and providing the tools and space needed for teens to tell the stories of their own neighborhood. Students will participate in a photo and journalism workshop, and be assigned to report on neighborhood stories. Their work will be published in local media, and shared during local events. Through this project, we hope to engage our students in community leadership, and to create an ecosystem of local storytelling. Weʼre currently seeking curious and committed teens, and equipment donations (cameras and audio recorders). Students will receive a stipend upon completion of the workshop. Contact Jasmin Chang / info@communityheroes.nyc / 929-229-1076.
