The 112th Precinct Community Council is hosting two contests intended to get local students thinking about safety issues.
For November, the council is asking that students in fourth through 12th grade cover the topic of being safe on the Internet.
The students can create a poster, You Tube video or an essay on the topic. All entries are due at the precinct, located at 68-40 Austin St. in Forest Hills, by Nov. 11.
The council’s December contest, which is for all grades, calls on students to create a poster encouraging people to keeping lights on at their houses or apartments when they are not home. Posters are due at the precinct by Dec. 9.
The council holds contests every year for local students.
council’s next meeting will be held at the precinct at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 16. At
that time, Capt. Thomas Conforti will give updates on local police initiatives,
crime statistics and safety concerns as well as answer questions.
