Congratulations and thanks to Kings County DA Charles Hynes and NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly on yesterday’s indictment of 11 individuals for the sale of 154 illegal guns. Six of the guns were used to commit crimes in New York City, including two shootings in Brooklyn.
The result of this year-long investigation shows how extensive the illegal gun enterprise is and the damage it has on our communities. I commend DA Hynes, Commissioner Kelly and the NYPD officers involved for a job well done.
The city Department of Education will be hosting a “Planning for Success Workshop: Supporting Transitions through High School to College and Career,” as part of the 2nd annual Parents as Partners Week, being held from October 15 to October 20, 2012.
The workshops are designed to inform parents about higher academic standards and ways parents can get involved in their child’s education, to ensure all students graduate ready for college and careers.
The Brownsville Community Justice Center is seeking a Program Coordinator to run the Brownsville Anti-Violence Project (BAVP), a new initiative geared towards reducing violence in the Brownsville community.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to, developing and maintaining relationships with local service providers and program partners, including law enforcement, faith leaders, and community stakeholders, in order to identify and access resources for individuals at high risk of being gun violence victims or perpetrators.
“I’m disappointed New York’s request to suspend the expansion of the Secure Communities program was ignored. This program threatens any hope of developing new inroads among law enforcement and our immigrant communities of New York. Furthermore, any progress toward a working relationship between the two will surely suffer once this program is implemented.”
Session begins at 3 p.m. today. My bill, S. 1345 is expected to be voted on. The measure protects foster children from being placed in a home which has previously been found to be unsuitable for providing care.
