NYPD holds annual anti-gun violence town hall in the Bronx
The NYPD held its annual anti-gun violence town hall in the Bronx Thursday night.
Before the town hall, the department put on a day of fun for the community. It was done in an effort to bridge the gap between police and the community.
The NYPD closed off about two blocks and filled the streets with activities like rock climbing and a game truck for video games.
The department says it hopes this will establish a relationship with the youth.
“We’re looking to interact with the communities. We want to hear their concerns. We want to know how we can be helpful, resourceful and we’re just looking to create a dialogue between police and our community here in the Bronx,” said NYPD Detective Kaz Daughtry.
