Sunday, November 6 was a very special day for many expecting mothers. Detective Fred Washington, organizer from the NYPD Community Outreach Division brought a community baby shower to the Rockaway YMCA. This initiative first started in one borough. Now the NYPD brings it to all five boroughs. The goal was to give expecting mothers free necessary baby items at an event featuring food and raffle giveaways. At the same time, the event serves to let people know that the NYPD is there to provide safety for their families. The event included resources that let soon to be mothers know about different services available in their neighborhood provided by state, city, and local agencies.
