Letter: House Party Awareness

I would like to inform your readers of some information passed along to me from Lawrence W. Mulvey, commissioner of the Nassau County Police Department.

The police department has noticed a correlation between large house parties and the likelihood of violence occurring at such gatherings. The level of violence in the incidents has varied from moderate to severe. However, in most cases, the police were not informed of the gatherings until it was too late.

With this in mind, the police department is asking that all residents be aware of what’s happening in their neighborhood, and to call 911 if a local party appears to be getting unruly.

The safety of the residents of Nassau County is a top priority for me, and for the Nassau County Police Department as well. By using some pre-emptive judgment, we can prevent a situation from escalating and turning tragic. When it comes to safety, you can never be too careful.
