Brooklyn - Queens Day is OVER along with Senior Cut Day. Hats off to the 100th Precinct Police Officers and 23 Transit District Police Officers for a job WELL DONE.
Both Commanders, Deputy Inspector Olexa of the 100th Precinct and Captain Telfer of Transit District 23, prepared Rockaway and Broad Channel with additional police, K-9 Units, mounted horses, the Queens Borough South Mobile Van which was located on Beach 116 Street and police (in uniform) sitting in lifeguard chairs on the beach.
No crowds came this year, which shows the police can never know with certainty what will occur. Guess that is why policing is a very difficult job. I would love to see some (job well done) comments from Rockaway residents and Broad Channel residents.
We all know the police are often criticized, but not often complimented for their good work.
