4th precinct Inspector Regina ran the meeting.

The guest speaker for the evening was Captain Dominici of the MTA Police. It is a bi-state law enforcement agency covering 14 counties with over 1100 officers. The Captain explained the numerous diciplines within the department and noted that they will be conducting a recruiting effort in September 2022.

Inspector Regina noted that the precinct again has seen a slight downturn in car thefts. He again urged residents not to leave their key fobs or valuables in their cars and to lock your car doors. All of the incidents in the precinct have involved unlocked cars with the keyfob left inside. Commercial burglaries have also fallen off.

The ongoing car gatherings in the precinct were again addressed. The Inspector stated that it continues to be a difficult task although there have been arrests including 2 individuals from out of state. He also noted this is a widespread problem in most of the precincts.

The precinct is still dedicating numerous resources in order to alleviate this situation.

The issue of loud music at night was addressed. Many residents explained that the music was emanating from the park and ride as well as the industrial park. The residents stated that the noise travels a very far distance and is very disturbing. The inspector made note of all the input of the residents and said that the situation will be investigated.

The next community meeting will be held in September. No meetings are scheduled for July and August.

Thanks to Bob and Lauri Murphy

The meeting started with a presentation by a captain of the MTA police who reviewed how they work in concert with SCPD and most calls involve quality of life issues at train stations and lost and stolen items. He went over the “ if you see something, say something.”
Another presentation was given by the Sargent of the Highway Site team. This is a group of 8 officers who deal with ticketing speeders based on accident data and speed studies conducted in all 7 Pct in Suffolk county. They have been actively patrolling the William Floyd Parkway and issued 476 speeding tickets last month in that road. They utilize all unmarked cars. 
7th PCT information was then discussed as follows:
Crime is up 27 percent YTD and violent crime is down 20 percent YTD. The biggest area causing the increase is property crimes. There is an increase in stolen cars and car breakins. 90 percent of these cases involve unlock cars. Also luxury cars have side mirrors that retract when the FOB is taken out of car. Thief’s look for these cars so that can identify when the FOB is in the car.
A number of arrests have been made recently for these types of crimes and the individuals are teens from NYC and New Jersey .
Crashes for the month was 181 vs 254 last year. There was 1 fatality which was a motorcycle just south of the Rocky Point High School on county road 21.
There were 14 DWI arrests and 943 tickets issued in the PCT. 
A total of 336 crimes were reported with 4 robberies and 6 burglaries. The burglaries are mainly at vacant homes or homes for sale that are empty. 
YTD there has been 17 confiscated Quads and ATVs
