The 106th and 102nd precincts are just two of more than 70 City Police Department commands gearing up for this year’s National Night Out Against Crime.
On Tuesday, Aug. 7, NYPD officers and civilians will come together for the annual campaign that promotes the cop-community bond that helps make neighborhoods safer. According to the department, National Night Out “seeks to strengthen the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement, fostering a true sense of community.”
The NYPD has endorsed the annual event as an opportunity for residents to “meet leaders and personnel from your local precinct and interact with neighbors, community members, and local businesses with the common goal of partnership and safety.”
This year, the 106th Precinct Community Council’s National Night Out Against Crime is at Police Officer Edward Byrne Park (North Conduit Avenue, 135th Avenue between 130th Place and 134th Street) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
And the 102nd Precinct Community Council is set to mark the 35th annual National Night Out Against Crime from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Forest Park (Between Woodhaven Boulevard and Forest Park Drive).
Each event features games and activities for families and plenty of crime-prevention information.
