Dear Friends: 

I would like to invite you to our first ever Youth and Police Initiative (YPI) Certification Ceremony on Tuesday, October 4th at 7 pm in the City Council Chambers at New Rochelle City Hall. Effective community policing requires that the community and police come together and form partnerships to solve problems. I am proud of the progress our community has made in this area thus far, starting with our piloting team that included community representation from key anchor institutions such as Shiloh Baptist Church, Bethesda Baptist Church and New York Covenant Church.
