Brooklyn Foot Patrol Seeks Volunteer Coordinator

The BAC is looking to restart our weekly foot patrol, but we need a volunteer from the neighborhood to step up and coordinate the activities. We’re only talking about a few hours a month.  Community Foot Patrols provide a visible presence as a deterrent to criminal activity. Active trained patrol volunteers collaborate with crime prevention coordinators and police to reduce neighborhood problems and clean up graffiti.

To get involved, email the BAC chair, mike@brooklyn-neighborhood.org
