FREE NYPD Security Survey for all Staten Island Businesses!

The NYPD provides a number of services to help increase awareness around public safety concerns. These services are offered FREE of charge to the general public. They include lectures on a wide range of topics, including identity theft, child safety, and prescription drug abuse, as well as in-depth evaluations of residential and commercial properties designed to alert residents and owners of potential security vulnerabilities.
 
If you are interested in any of these services, contact your local precinct and ask to speak to the crime prevention officer. NYPD has Crime prevention Officers in each precinct who are qualified to prepare the Survey. Please either email Lt. Awad direct at Rafet.Awad@nypd.org   or call your local precinct.
