National Night Out Against Crime

Last night was National Night Out Against Crime, a nation-wide event that began back in 1984 to improve police community relations and neighborhood morale.  Here in Brownsville, the 73rd Precinct held a wonderful event with food, music, basketball, moon bounces, a climbing wall and lots of neighborhood organizations.  Our staff and participants from the Justice Center came out to provide information and mingle with residents.   The Mayor, Police Commissioner, Kings County District Attorney and Brooklyn Borough President were among the dignitaries in attendance; and our program members and staff enjoyed meeting them!

From top to bottom: Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Police Commisioner Raymond Kelly, Brookyln Borough President Marty Markowitz, and Captain Joseph Gulotta, commanding officer of the 73rd Precinct, with staff and members from the Brownsville Community Justice Center.
