National Night Out 2009

From Acting Project Director Maria Almonte:

On Tuesday, August 4, 2009, Bronx Community Solutions participated once again in the Bronx's National Night Out Against Crime. This event has been taking place for over twenty-five years across the nation and it is designed to bring together residents and the criminal justice system to improve safety and prevent crime.

This year we assisted three of our neighborhood precincts (the 43rd, 44th, and 48th) by providing set-up and clean-up crews and handing out information to local residents about the services at the court. At the 44th we set up a table full of valuable information for the community, at the 48th, we removed some graffiti from a commercial building centrally located in the areas where they did their ‘night-out’ event. And finally, we provided a clean-up community service crew at the 43rd's event. All of our partners appreciated our collaborative efforts in making this year another successful community event.
