More police patrols are needed in Hicksville, Jericho, Plainview and Syosset. These were once safe neighborhoods but now it is commonplace to hear of robberies, assaults, home break-ins. Economy is bad and the number of illegal immigrants residing in the aforementioned neighborhoods constantly grow.

Everyone complains about crime in their neighborhood and wants more police patrols. One way individuals can put more patrols on the streets is joining the Nassau County Auxiliary Police and becoming a deterent to local crime.

I think The Patch should interview Kevin about the NCAP. What it's about. What they do. Who to contact if interested. How about it PATCH??

How can I, as a retiree, help the community self police. A key to sustaining a secure or safe community is police or police auxiliary presence. Visual presence is a deterrent and we need to relight that presence in Syosset.

How can I help to self police Syosset, beyond the NCPD Auxiliary? A formal and uniformed Neighborhood Watch?

In the Patch there are articles and videos about the Auxiliary Police and how individuals can help their community by offering their time.
