Today, Boro Park Shomrim proudly introduced the newest addition of their patrol fleet. This state-of-the-art vehicle underscores their unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of the Boro Park community.
This significant addition was made possible through the generous donations from the Community Service Initiative, in collaboration with the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York and the UJA-Federation of New York. Their unwavering support has been instrumental in bolstering Boro Park Shomrim’s efforts to deter crime.
Specifically, this vehicle will play a crucial role in the Shabbos & Yom Tov Patrol program, says Boro Park Shomrim Coordinator Motty Brauner. For nearly three years, the Shabbos & Yom Tov Patrol has been active in Boro Park, with Shabbos Goyem patrolling the streets during both day and night. Residents feel a heightened sense of security when they spot a Shomrim patrol car. This initiative was introduced in response to the rising crime rates, particularly on Shabbos, in Boro Park. As Boro Park Shomrim continues to serve the community, they are grateful for the partnerships that empower them to do so.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place at the Shomrim Headquarters, located on 14th Avenue and 37th Street. Community Board 12 District Manager Barry Spitzer conveyed his profound gratitude for the new patrol vehicle, emphasizing the invaluable relationship between CSI and Shomrim. R’ Berish Freilich, the Senior Community Liaison, expressed his thanks to Deputy Inspector Jason Hagestad for their generous donation of the patrol vehicle. The event saw a notable turnout, with attendees including Deputy Inspector Jason P. Hagestad, Senior Community Liaison R’ Berish Freilich, Shomrim coordinators, dedicated volunteers, and representatives from CSI.
It was a pleasure to represent CSI and be there to inaugurate a new patrol vehicle for BoroPark Shomrim just before Rosh Hashanah. Community Security Patrols play a tremendously valuable role in keeping NY Jews safe. Thank you BP Shomrim! https://t.co/MCumplNYkT— Mitch Silber (@MitchSilber) September 14, 2023
