Last week has been a busy one for the Office of Youth and Community programs!
Bridging the Gap: On the Road - 10/26 Lastly, on 10/26 we headed to Sunset Park, Brooklyn and teamed up with local residents, students and officers to bring our Bridging the Gap Series on the road. We had over 50 youth and parents attend, and about 20 officers from the 72nd and PSA1 precincts. This is the first time leaving Red Hook with this idea and it went very well. We reverted to our first style, with a short ice breaker and circle style, discussions and every 10-15 minutes would rotate officers so that everybody could interact with all the officers. Chief Rodney Harrison of NYPD was in attendance and even humbly joined in the activities. To conclude we played a fun hula hoop game and all came together to debrief and received great feedback from both the officers and participants. We will definitely be visiting Sunset Park again along with other communities with our series!
