NYPD reps meet
for a day of fun
in Far Rockaway
BY DEAN MOSES
The NYPD Community Affairs Bureau and the 101st Precinct
hosted a community event designed to strengthen the relationship
between police officers and residents ahead of a town hall
on gun violence at Hassock Street and Beach Channel Drive in
Far Rockaway on Friday, July 24.
With roadways nearby roads being blocked off, local families
and police representatives played video games, danced, played
basketball, kicked soccer balls at a gigantic inflatable dartboard,
and even raced one another up a rock-climbing wall.
From the late afternoon until the evening, laughter could be
heard echoing between the sound of live music and basketballs
reverberating off the court. After enjoying the revelry, the event
culminated with a town hall discussing the recent surge in gun
violence around the city.
