NYPD ramps up patrols of Highland Park

From the Queens Courier:

The 104th Precinct wants park-goers to take a hike out of Highland Park at curfew.

Starting later this year officers will make daily patrols through the park at 8:30 p.m. to tell people to leave by 9 p.m., when it closes.

Residents living near Highland Park, a green space with many trails and ball fields near the Brooklyn-Queens border in Ridgewood, have been complaining about people using the park through the late hours of the night.

The Precinct has heard complaints of drinking and loud music playing after hours in the park dating back to last year, and Captain Chris Manson said that the party has ended.

Officers will start making the rounds as soon as the weather is warmer. If someone is spotted after the curfew they will be issued a summons.

this will last for a few months - about the time everyone will forget the promise.

I live by this park. It is nice and like any other city park has its share of after hour dwellers. There should be increased police presence at all parks city wide to monitor the well-being of the kids and minors against indecent, lewd predators.
