Halloween night the most quiet in my memory---celebrate Diwali Indian festival on Nov 8
Release Date: November 01, 2013

HALLOWEEN NIGHT, 2013 WAS THE MOST QUIET HALLOWEEN IN MEMORY

A CREDIT TO RETIRING POLICE CHIEF JOSEPH DECARLO..

During the past 22 years I have spent a few hours every Halloween night patrolling the streets of Greenburgh with the police chief. When I first assumed office Halloween night was a big problem. Lots of mischief all over town: eggs, shaving cream, vandalism, property damage.

 

The police responded by allocating significant resources to streets on Halloween night. Tonight, when I drove around town with Police Chief Joseph DeCarlo, I was amazed. The police radio was quiet. Did not hear any reports of eggs, shaving cream, vandalism anywhere around town. We saw many police cars patrolling neighborhoods that had been problem areas over the years. The Chief and I stopped by at homes that requested a housecall - the residents who answered their doors were very pleased. We both noticed that there were more parents escorting their children during evening hours --helping to make sure that their children are safe.

 

Chief DeCarlo is retiring as our police Chief at the end of November. Halloween night, 2013 is a nice testimonial to Chief DeCarlo's service. Thanks to the Chief's hard work Halloween night has become less and less of a problem every year. When Captain Chris McNerney assumes his new job as Police Chief at the end of November it will be almost impossible to do a better job of patrolling the streets on Halloween--because we got no complaints tonight.

 

I also spent the early evening hours at the Theodore Young Community Center's Halloween party. Another outstanding event. A good turnout. Lots of fun for children and families. Well organized. The staff of the TDYCC did a great job.

 

There is a large Indian community in Greenburgh. They are holding a celebration on November 8th that should be enjoyable. Let's celebrate the diversity of our town!

Diwali is the Indian festival of lights but more importantly is a celebration of friends, family and community. It is celebrated all over the world with fun, food, music and dance.
 
Join fellow residents of Greenburgh and surrounding communities to celebrate Diwali locally with delicious food, fun activities and the best part - Bollywood dancing!
 
THIS IS NOT A RELIGIOUS EVENT - ALL FAMILIES ARE WELCOME!
