Dear Alumni Members,

Here are the major March 2022 monthly statistics for the 1st Precinct which held its meeting on April 7, 2022:

368 arrests;

5 residential and 6 commercial burglaries;

8 robberies;

33 drug overdoses, 6 fatal;

4 shootings;

16 DWIs;

78 drug arrests; and

4 search warrants executed.

The most newsworthy event was the man with an alleged gun at the Regal Theater in Deer Park on March 11, 2022.  There was a large police response and the entire building was evacuated.  No gun was found and the individual with apparent mental issues was detained by an off-duty Lloyd Harbor police officer, one of the 92 moviegoers.  Suffolk Police then arrested the individual.

There was a car meet up in Deer Park on March 20, 2022 and multiple summonses were issued.  The attraction is illegal racing on public streets.

The next meeting at the West Babylon Public Library is May 5, 2022 at 7 PM.

Respectfully,

Justin Cooper, 1st Precinct Coordinator
