Representatives from the 106th Precinct, the Lindenwood Alliance and youngsters from the Precinct’s Law Enforcement Explorers program joined forces to prevent crime.

The 106th Precinct — and youngsters from the Precinct’s Law Enforcement Explorers program — joined forces with the Lindenwood Alliance to spread awareness about personal safety.

At the “Crime Prevention Fair” on Friday, November 11, organization members were on hand at the Walter Ward Playground in Howard Beach to pass out an assortment of fliers with tips on how to increase safety while walking on the street, driving, parking, using an ATM or elevators, taking the subway or bus and even while at home.

In all cases, the fliers advise residents to eliminate opportunities that may make them targets, increase awareness in places they feel most comfortable, trust instincts regardless of feeling embarrassed and prepare daily schedules with safety in mind.

To draw in parents and to make it fun for kids, the Lindenwood Alliance provided cotton candy, juice, snacks and even face painting.

“I want to help the community to be a little more aware,” said Christina Gold, president of the Lindenwood Alliance, who added that the Alliance was also celebrating its one-year anniversary. “We’re very excited. We’ve come a long way, and we’re looking forward to the future.”
