Yonkers Police Youth Coalition
Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano, Police Commissioner Charles Gardner and YMCA CEO Shawn Patterson-Howard joined dozens of students at Yonkers Middle High School to launch a new initiative aimed to improve relationships between the Yonkers Police Department (YPD) and the community they serve, particularly young adults.
The Yonkers Police Youth Coalition, which is led and run by local Yonkers youth in partnership with the YPD, will help create an ongoing, open dialogue between young people and Police Officers through regular, informal meetings and outings. The Coalition will also encourage young people in the City to be more proactive in developing and maintaining long-term relationships with Police Officers in their neighborhoods.
