Assemblyman Boyland and Concerned
Constituents Turn Out to Demand Police Presence
Not only does drug trafficking pose a grave threat to the vivacity of our neighborhoods, it is illegal
and most importantly, destroying the lives of our nation’s youth. In response, Assemblyman Boyland,
Deputy Inspector Sam Wright, several block presidents, and concerned constituents will gather on the
corner of Rockaway and Bainbridge to demand increased police presence. In particular, this specific
corner is noted for its high volume of drug related activities. Interested persons who wish to participate
in this demonstration should contact: Sam Wright or William Boyland.
If you have any other questions or concerns about quality of life issues in our community,
please feel free to contact our office at
