Council Provides Neighborhood Watch Update
Danny Ruscillo, president of the 100 Precinct Community Council, met with N.Y.P.D. Deputy Inspector Kosseim, Police Officer Harris and Police Officer Khela of the Community Affairs Bureau Special Projects Unit out of One Police Plaza, along with Queens Borough South Officers. The meeting was related to the Block Watchers program for the confines of the 100 Precinct area. Ruscillo was told at the meeting that N.Y.P.D. Queens South Lieutenant Cleare is putting together a training video which will be shown to all the volunteers of the Block Watchers program, along with a slide show presentation.
There will be no limit on the number of Block Watchers that can sign up and there will be training offered locally. The 100 Precinct will be the first in the entire city to run this model pilot program. The next two precincts in Patrol Borough Queens South will be the 103 Precinct and the 105 Precinct. Volunteers who signed up will be notified once training is set to begin.
To date, the 100 Precinct has 19 volunteers but is seeking as many as they can get on board. Those interested can contact the 100 Precinct Community Affairs Bureau at 718-318-4233 or attend the next 100 Precinct Community Council meeting on April 25, at 7:30 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Rockaway Beach.
