Message to All

The past weeks have been very difficult for many of us, our heartfelt sorrows went out to the family and friends of those hurt and Sean Bell killed on the morning of his wedding day. While this situation is a tragedy for all involved, we are hoping that everyone will keep their wits about them and wait for District Attorney Brown to complete his investigation and the facts to come out. Right now we have many speculations and lots of voices from outside this community. When these voices are long gone, those of us that live here are going nowhere and we want justice based on facts, not violence. While the officers that were involved in this shooting, are not from the 103rd Precinct, our precinct has often been the focus of one of these outside groups. We are concerned about our youth, often very impressionable and impulsive. We really don’t want anymore bloodshed or excuses for more bloodshed. In this community we have strived and worked towards the present solid working relationship we now have with the local police. Should problems arise, we revel in the fact that we now come together to rectify them. Commissioner Kelly is one of the best Police Commissioners that we have had in the past few years! He reaches out to the various communities and actually listens to our suggestions and problems. District Attorney Richard Brown is someone that demonstrates that he cares about the communities in which he serves, he, too, has ventured beyond his office to find out what his constituents think and what problems they experience. Lets work together in a positive way to make changes and to see that improvements are made in our communities. We do not blame the entire police department for what happened, we NEED law enforcement to serve and protect and they need our help. We also must work together to provide positive, productive and resourceful space for the youth in this community. As our logo says, "together, we can make a difference"

In our on-going effort, we must all practice Crime Prevention while attempting to maintain some normalcy in our lives. The following Crime Prevention tips are meant to safeguard you on a day to day basis.


bulletHave your key ready before you get to the front door/make sure your entrance is well lighted.
bulletIf you live in an apartment, don’t be polite and hold the lobby door open for a stranger who has been waiting.
bulletList only your last name and first initial in your mailbox.
bulletDon’t buzz someone inside unless you know them
bulletIf a stranger wants to use your phone for any kind of call from business to emergency, KEEP HIM OUT and YOU make the call for them! ANY problems or in doubt? CALL the POLICE!
bulletIF you arrive home and find your DOOR OPEN, DO NOT GO INSIDE, call the POLICE from a pay phone or neighbors house and ask them to meet you.
bulletDon’t get on the elevator with a stranger if your own good judgement warns you against it- need an excuse to avoid embarrassment say something like, "Oh I forgot my mail."
bulletWhen coming home late at night or any other time, if a motorist bothers you while walking, turn around and walk in the opposite direction of the car. Do this as often as necessary and he should get discouraged.
bulletIf you are driving, keep windows rolled up, except for a small, ventilation space and KEEP your doors locked!

The above are but a few crime prevention tips obtained from Crime Prevention Section of the NYPD website. Please make an attempt to reach your Crime Prevention Officer at the 103rd Pct. For further information and more crime prevention tips. Call (718)657-8195 or 8194.

We wish each and everyone of you a safe, Healthy Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
