Queens Assemblywoman hosts town hall addressing public safety concerns and rise in criminal activity in district

Queens community leaders and residents were tuned in on Monday, March 15 for Assemblywoman Jenifer Rajkumar’s virtual town hall with commanding officers from three police precincts to address the alarming spike of criminal activity and quality-of-life issues in their neighborhoods.

Rajkumar represents the 38th Assembly District which includes the neighborhoods of Woodhaven, Ridgewood, Richmond Hill, Ozone Park and Glendale. According to the Assemblywoman, the number one concern in the district is public safety, as she referenced two recent shootings that claimed the lives of two young people in Woodhaven, and three attempted sexual assaults that occurred at Forest Park and at nearby subway stations.
