Members of the 112th Precinct Police Explorers program and students from Forest Hills High School cleaned up the community last Saturday by painting over graffiti in several locations.
The spots hit by the volunteers, above, with police officers and 112th Precinct Community Council President Heidi Chain, fourth from right, were the Forest Hills Little League facility on Fleet Street; the nearby trestle for the abandoned Long Island Rail Road tracks to Rockaway; the LIRR trestles over 63rd Drive near Austin Street and over Woodhaven Boulevard at Eliot Avenue in Rego Park; and a few other locations on Alderton Avenue and 60th Road.
Chain made sure each participant got a certificate from the Precinct Community Council.
She is also working with Capt. Thomas Conforti, the precinct’s commanding officer, to keep the council’s Facebook page updated with public safety information. The PCC can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
