The Suffolk County Police held a community meeting on June 4th, 2019 at the 7th Precinct in Shirley at 7pm.  These meetings are meant to address issues the community faces and to give members of the community an opportunity to interact with the officers who patrol and work in their areas.

These meetings cover the entire 7th precinct which covers many hamlets outside of Rocky Point, Sound Beach, & Shoreham.  We aim to condense the information in these meetings to issues that only pertain to our north shore communities.
