100 PCT CC Holds Monthly Meeting
The 100 Precinct Community Council held its monthly meeting on Wednesday night at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Rockaway Beach. Guest speakers were Peter A. Guiney, D.O., medical education director of the Family Practice Residency Program at Peninsula Hospital Center and Dr. Robert Helman, the director of Peninsula Hospital Center’s emergency room. They both discussed the abuse of prescription drugs and painkillers often found inside an individual’s home and that are also illegally obtained. The speakers were asked to appear after the council received numerous e-mails regarding teenage abuse of prescription drugs.
Transit District 23 police officers Vladislav Matatov and Michael Levix (center) were awarded the cop of the month awards. They were recognized for apprehending individuals wanted in connection with an attempted robbery of a female victim on the A train near Howard Beach in February
