Community Partnership Unit


Introducing the Community Partnerships Unit

Established in November 2016, the Community Partnership Unit serves as a critical link between law enforcement and the community, working to address existing crime issues in our neighborhoods and helping communities implement crime prevention strategies. In addition, CPU staff will take community input on any crime concerns from community members, and work with them to develop ways to make all our communities crime-free.


Stand Up. Step Forward. Stop Bullying

This contest, open to all Staten Island students from Kindergarten thru Fifth Grade, will allow students to showcase their artistic talent and their commitment to end bullying. Studies conducted by a leading national non-profit show that children who bully by age 8 are 4 times as likely to have a criminal record by age 24.  

By working together, we can put an end to bullying, while preventing our young people from going down the wrong path. For more information, please see the attached flyer as well as the rules & guidelines.



The “NO D” Initiative: Presented by our Assistant District Attorneys, “NO D” is a presentation offered to students in grades 6-12 at public and private schools throughout Staten Island about the real life horrors of drug addiction.   Until we reach our ultimate goal of continuous and mandatory substance abuse addiction education in all schools throughout the City of New York, these presentations are a way to discourage our young people from ever engaging in these life-defining deadly behaviors. If you would like to request a “NO D” presentation for your school, or would like more information, please email us at externalaffairs@rcda.nyc.gov
