The 61st Precinct Community Council Meeting will meet tomorrow, November 13, at the Bainbridge Center, 3093 Ocean Avenue.
Prior to the usual meeting, the precinct is holding a free document shredding event in an effort to combat ongoing issues of identity theft in the community.
From 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at the Bainbridge Center, an NYPD shredder truck will be on site to destroy documents with sensitive information. Bring unwanted and/or expired personal documents so that they can be safely shredded, destroyed and disposed of.
Items to bring include:
- Old tax returns
- Expired identification
- Old bank statements
- Sensitive documents
- Cancelled checks
- Credit cards
- Any other documents containing personal information (names, addresses, birth dates, social security numbers, etc)
The meeting will begin after the shredding event at 7:30 p.m. The Community Council is comprised of concerned residents and top brass from the 61st Precinct, and offers neighbors an opportunity to ask questions and express concerns about crime and safety issues in the area. The monthly meetings are attended by Captain John M. Chell, the commanding officer of the precinct, who will present a report on incidents and trends in the neighborhood, and speak face-to-face with neighbors about specific concerns.
