CO Warns On Home Break-ins
By Miriam Rosenberg
That was the good news that Captain Walter Salowski, the commanding officer of the 101 Precinct, delivered to the community at the 101 Precinct Community Council meeting on May 18.
While major crimes are down, there are some problems Salowski did want to make Far Rockaway residents aware of.
Salowski reported that there had been some home invasions in the area. Speaking about the late night incidents, he said that victims were followed home. He advised residents to “lock their doors and look out for your neighbors. If you see something suspicious, call us.”
“We’re here to respond to the your needs,” Salowski said. “Keep us in the loop.”
One way to keep the precinct in the loop is to use the 311 number that is tied into the precinct. The number is for quality of life and non-emergency problems.
Once again this month, residents were reminded that driving and talking on the cell phone are illegal, as well as dangerous.
Driving westbound into the glare of the sun during the hours of 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. can be especially hazardous. The advice from the members of the 101 Precinct – don’t use the cell phone while driving and wear seatbelts. The police also warned they will be doing speed enforcement on Bay 32nd turning on to Norton.
