With very few resources, the Police Liaison Group provides an invaluable service to schools, youth, parents and the community. By facilitating the flow of information between law enforcement and community members, it plays an important role in enhancing community safety. Moreover, the organization has adapted well to the changing needs of the community and has embraced new technologies to optimize its effectiveness.

Through the organization's alerts and webinars I've become more informed about issues related to community safety.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand its services to more neighborhoods.

SUN is a wonderfully useful and informative website. I have known about it for 2 yrs, and have known Jill Greenbaum (CEO and Legal Director) for much longer. Jill is a very smart and clear-minded individual who realised the advantages that uniting the school grapevine can really benefit school children and their parents. This organization has helped to increase the safety of school chldren, identify trouble spots, prevent graffii crimes, and reduce delinquency. A definitely good point - you can report or call anonymously if you so wish.

For about twenty years, The Police Liaison Group (PLG) has been a trusted, effective not-for-profit seeking to be highly responsive in improving safety within Manhattan. Its School Unite Network (SUN) has focused during the past few years on school safety. SUN transmits via the Internet safety notices and safety tips to a large number of subscribers (free of charge), many of whom have school age children. SUN works closely with the schools, NYPD, and the Parks Department. The PLG through its CEO, and its dedicated Board of Directors and Advisors, have moved quickly in meeting and addressing new issues and concerns that occur within the community. I look forward to seeing the PLG evolve over the next few years, as with any good organizations, it strives to be a "work-in-process", and not to be satisfied with its past successes.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

How it has been helpful in providing credible and vetted information at highly critical moments to parents who have a specific problem, and have turned to the PLG for assistance.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The PLG needs more funding to expand its mission. It needs volunteers to work on fund raising campaigns and to be involved in obtaining grants.

PLG provides highly useful information to promote the safety of schoolchildren in NYC. Its reports are timely, succinct and important. As an advisor who helped set up PLG, I have seen it develop into a highly important community resource. It is served by an extremely dedicated network of parents and community officials.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have reviewed many of the reports and bulletins provided by this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more funding.

Jill is a tireless advocate for the safety of New York's children. She has established a communications system recognized and utilized by parents, schools and law enforcement, but is not willing to rest: she is always exploring new ways to improve and expand SUN in the most effective, most cost-efficient way possible.

Hire additional support for Jill, expand the Board
