Stop & Shop Coming To 100 PCT CC
In an effort to set the record straight regarding rumors of crime in and around the new Stop & Shop supermarket in Arverne, representatives from the company and security team will speak at Wednesday’s 100 Precinct Community Council meeting.
The council’s meeting, held at 7:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Rockaway Beach, will host the president of the New York Division of Stop & Shop, Ron Onorato, and Mitch Scull, leader of the security team assigned to the perimeter of the supermarket.
Rumors have been swirling that the Stop & Shop is being plagued by crimes such as robbery and car theft. However, police and supermarket representatives have continually dismissed the claims because they are untrue. The property has 24-hour private security and many visible and hidden cameras in and around the store.
Awards for the 100 Precinct Cop of the Month will also be handed out and the new Captain of Transit District 23, Roy Kaplan, will be introduced.
