Night Out Against Crime a Success in Six Neighborhoods in 74th Assembly District

August 4, 2009
Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh celebrated National Night Out Against Crime on August 4, 2009 with police officers and community residents in six different neighborhoods throughout the 74th Assembly District, including the 7th, 9th, 13th, and 17th Precincts, Police Service Area 4, which serves and protects public housing residents, and Transit Bureau District 4, which polices the subways and buses in much of Manhattan's East Side and held its event in Union Square.

The night was a resounding success. The precincts' commanding officers and rank and file members, precinct community council members, community leaders, and neighborhood residents of all ages enjoyed the festivities, and communities acknowledged the importance of uniting to combat crime, keep residents safe, and support the efforts of local precincts - and celebrated our continued success in these efforts. At many of the events, Kavanagh presented an official Assembly proclamation to the precinct and the community council in honor of National Night Out and in recognition of their work throughout the year.

More information on getting involved in the local police community council in your neighborhood is available through Kavanagh's district office at 212-979- 9696 or your local precinct. The councils, which function in precincts throughout New York City, generally meet monthly.
