Kingsbrook aims to keep communities safe

Kingsbrook’s Best Health School has partnered with the 71st Precinct to feature a series of educational sessions for the community in 2017. On Saturday, June 24, neighborhood Coordinating Officers Paul Parkinson and Stephen Schmitt will present the first of the series entitled: “Keeping our Communities Safe.” The event will be held on the main campus at 585 Schenectady Ave. between Winthrop Street & Rutland Road in the Lillian Minkin Ballroom.

The Neighborhood Coordinating Police Officer program was created out of the need for new methods to close the gap between cops and communities. Through this program, New York city residents get to know their neighborhood police officers in a brand new way. “We are happy to partner with our neighborhood coordinating officers at the 71st Precinct as part of our Best Health School initiative,” said Enid Dillard, director of marketing and public affairs. “We are extremely committed to providing education that impacts our community’s health and wellness. Addressing our community’s safety falls within the scope of awareness and prevention and that is invaluable to our residents.”

The mission of the Best Health School is to provide better access to wellness information and screenings to promote healthier communities in the borough of Brooklyn. As such, the Best Health School’s education programs are integral part of Kingsbrook’s effort to improve access to quality care and education efforts.
