Founder's Farewell Remarks as SUN Ceases Operation on 8/31/16

Dear Friends,

After 23 years of public service in helping to improve the safety and quality of life in New York City, the Police Liaison Group will cease operations on August 31, 2016.

I am humbled and grateful to all of you for your participation and support of the Police Liaison Group. I would especially like to thank current and past members of our Board of Directors, and the many individuals and organizations that provided pro bono services, and volunteered their time to the Police Liaison Group over the years.

Members of the Police Liaison Group were privileged in developing and implementing safety programs, such as those through our Schools Unite Network (SUN).

SUN’s technology-based communications program activated in cooperation with the NYPD for the safety of youths and schools helped prevent crime and keep youths on track.  It was effective in its ability to receive and synthesize sensitive information, verified by reliable sources, and share it with parents, students and schools in a meaningful context to help protect children. An essential component of SUN was working in partnership with public and private school heads and staff, parents, students and many outstanding members of law enforcement ranging from Officers at the NYPD’s School Safety Division to Chiefs of the NYPD, an experience I will always cherish.

It is now time for me to move on to other pursuits.  I am grateful for all of the caring people I have come to know, fond memories of time spent with parents, educators, law enforcement and other friends developing and implementing programs to help our communities, and for your trust and confidence that enabled me to serve the public in a way that was meaningful to me.

I wish you well and hope that you continue to work with mutual respect in cooperation with law enforcement in keeping our children, schools and communities safe.

With love and respect, as always,

 Jill

What is SUN?

SUN is an important safety initiative for children, activated in cooperation with the NYPD to help keep youths on track, prevent delinquency and reduce crime concerning youths, including drug dealing, gang activity, pedophilia, and substance abuse.  SUN began on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in the spring of 2006 and now has thousands of individuals from over 100 schools receiving SUN Alerts in Manhattan alone.

How does SUN work?

SUN transmits Incident Reports from parents, schools and community members to appropriate decision makers at the NYPD, when necessary, for their attention. SUN is especially effective in dispelling rumors circulating on the street and Internet, reducing fear and panic when a situation arises, and mobilizing the community when necessary, since SUN, established as a reliable source, rapidly disseminates recommended courses of action from the NYPD to our parent subscribers and member schools by issuing SUN Alerts.
