Community Affairs Bureau's Monthly Message -
April 2013

NYPD Current/Upcoming Event(s)

The NYPD Community Affairs Bureau hosts a program called "Cops and Teens Click Together," which teaches basic website design/programming (HTML) to young members of our community (typically ranging in age from 14-17). This introductory course is conducted over an eight (8) week interval and is taught by skilled uniformed members of the NYPD at selected precinct stationhouses.

This program will assist students by providing them with the necessary instruction to develop web design and programming skills. These skills can then be applied to potential employment opportunities, as well as a multitude of uses in their personal lives. Ideally, the program will enhance their desire to learn more about computers, and to develop much needed technical skills for today's competitive workforce.

This course takes place throughout the City at various times. It will be offered next at the 113 Precinct, beginning on Tuesday, April 16. It is a great way for our youth to interact with the Police in a positive setting, so please contact the Youth Services Section at 718-834-8855 for further information.

Tip of the Month

Subway crime is experiencing historic lows in New York City, but safety should not be taken for granted. Recently, the theft of electronic devices has been featured in many media reports. The NYPD is urging the community to remain vigilant while using personal electronic devices. Keep your electronic devices out of sight and stay alert.

Program of the Month:
Health and Safety Awareness

Did you know?

People are exposed to various kinds of mold every day, typically through touch or inhalation. Because molds naturally exist outdoors and indoors, living in a totally mold-free environment is practically impossible. As molds grow, spores can be released into the air where they can be easily inhaled. People who inhale large numbers of spores may get sick. Possible health concerns are an important reason to prevent mold growth and to be vigilant in the clean-up of indoor mold.

In an effort to promote health and safety awareness, the Community Affairs Bureau would like to make everyone aware of a workshop currently being provided by The New York City Department of Health, in conjunction with Hunter College/University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey to promote "Community Mold Awareness Program." By attending this valuable and comprehensive workshop, you can expect to:
Learn where and why mold grows.
Understand the health effects of mold exposure.
Gain an overview of the proper sequence and methods of: muck out, demolition, and cleaning/decontamination.
Explore various mold removal techniques
Understand hazards associated with mold remediation (chemical, biological, physical safety).
Learn more about who can remove mold - homeowners, volunteers, or mold remediation companies
Meetings will be held throughout the city, click on the following link to see the location nearest you: http://www.nyc.gov/html/cau/html/home/home.shtml. Funding for this program was provided by a generous grand from the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City.
