Hats off to the 68.
Community Board 10, on Monday, December 19, presented members of the 68th Precinct Auxiliary Unit with the Honor of the Pledge at its last full board meeting of the year.
The honor, presented to the unit by board Chair Doris Cruz at Shore Hill (9000 Shore Road), came on the heels of the unit also being awarded with the NYPD Unit Citation by the New York City Police Department for its outstanding accomplishments.
“We all know firsthand that the 68 Auxiliary Unit does an exemplary job serving the communities of Bay Ridge Dyker Heights and Fort Hamilton,” said CB 10 District Manager Josephine Beckmann of the volunteers who, day after day, assist the operations of the 68th Precinct. “They are out at every special event – festivals, summer strolls, back-to-school events, street renamings, and this year they have done a great job assisting patrol operations at the Dyker Lights display.”
There to accept the award alongside the unit were Captain Joseph Hayward, commanding officer of the 68th Precinct and Officer Yaser Shohatee, 68th Precinct auxiliary coordinator.
The 68th Precinct serves the neighborhoods of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Fort Hamilton.
