Brooklyn’s Shomrim Security Services Get New Patrol Cars

by admin

The Community Security Initiative in New York provided $400,000 in grants.


The Community Security Initiative (CSI) in New York has provided $400,000 to four civilian Jewish security services in Brooklyn, N.Y., known as Shomrim.

The funding comes from UJA-Federation of New York and a group of unnamed donors. It will be used for each outfit to purchase and support a patrol vehicle, part of a pilot program to run for six months.

CSI chose the groups—Shomrim BoroPark, Flatbush Shomrim, Williamsburg Shomrim and Crown Heights Shmira—based on what it deemed as the most vulnerable areas.

The timing coincides with the High Holiday season.

“This effort will bolster security presence in areas where Jews are an easy target for would-be assailants. Additional vehicular support will create a deterrent effect and, hopefully, we can prevent attacks before they happen,” said Mitchell Silber, executive director of CSI.
