4th neighborhood engagement event
GLOVERSVILLE — On Thursday, between 3 and 7 p.m. the Gloversville Police Department will host its fourth Neighborhood Engagement Unit event at Darling Field, while walking teams will target the surrounding neighborhoods in Ward 5 with information about available community resources.
The band Flame will begin performing at 3 p.m. Pizza from Cornerstone Mobile Counseling and ice cream from Stewart’s Shops will be provided free of charge while supplies last.
The event will also be the 2021 start of GPD participating in state Sen. James Tedisco’s Safe Summer Bike Helmet Program, now in its 23rd year. This program provides officers with “tickets” to reward youth wearing a bike helmet with a free ice cream cone or the ability to get a free bike helmet for those not wearing one.
