NYPD Current/Upcoming Event(s)
The NYPD Community Affairs Bureau administers citywide cricket and soccer leagues for teenagers ages 14 to 19. As a directive from the Police Commissioner, the Community Affairs Bureau's New Immigrant Outreach unit spearheaded these leagues as a means to establish and maintain strong relationships with youth from many immigrant communities. Currently there are approximately 16 Soccer teams and 12 Cricket teams. The Soccer tournament is played every Saturday in Brooklyn; Cricket meets every Tuesday and Wednesday at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. For further information, contact Sergeant Adeel Rana at 212-614-6743 or Adeel.Rana@nypd.org
Tip of the Month
Summer is here!
During the summer months, more people head to the beach, creating more opportunities for thieves. In an effort to keep crime to a minimum, we encourage you to follow these quick safety tips:
We recommend you take public transportation to the beaches, but if you must drive park your car in the beach parking lot. If the lot is full, park as near to it as possible. Try not to park on a side street away from the beach. Thieves watch for people to leave their cars and head for the beach, knowing that they are not likely to come back for several hours. A quiet street, without much traffic, might provide a thief with the perfect opportunity to break-in to your car. Never hide a spare key in or around the car.
Don't wear jewelry to the beach it could difficult to secure.
Don't take unnecessary items with you on the beach. Leave your checkbook, credit cards, purse and laptop at home. Limit the items in your wallet to a small amount of cash and your driver's license.
Keep your items somewhere that is close and within view. For example, place items at your side rather than behind your back or beach chair. If you go for a swim, ask someone in your group to watch your belongings. If you go for a walk, take your valuables with you.
Be alert for people who look suspicious or out of place, and who appear to be overly concerned with other person's actions and/or property.
Since it is very easy for people, especially children, to get lost on the beach, remember to check the number of the nearest lifeguard tower. This is a good reference point to help you remember where you are located on the beach.
When children go to public restrooms, they should be accompanied by an adult.

Program of the Month
The NYPD Community Affairs Bureau is consistently working to improve the quality of life of our communities by either implementing productive programs or sharing information on other City programs.
The Street Conditions Observation Unit (SCOUT), implemented by the Mayor's Office of Operations, is a team of inspectors assigned to improve quality of life in City neighborhoods; ensuring local government is responsive to conditions that can negatively impact communities. They focus on non-criminal conditions, such as missing traffic signs and other visibly identifiable street conditions. For further information please visit www.nyc.gov, keyword "SCOUT."
