Town supervisor, parents discuss school safety
Parents in Huntington Station spoke out about violence plaguing the area around Jack Abrams Intermediate School at a meeting.
Two shootings have recently occurred blocks away from the school.
The parents spoke directly to Town of Huntington Supervisor Frank Petrone.
?What I hear from people is ?keep going, get more police, keep going and coordinate the town, get in and modify codes, get illegal dwellings and people out.?? Petrone says.
Petrone say the key to combating the gang problem is to revitalize Huntington Station so gang members know they are not welcome.
Town leaders say they are working to make such changes quickly and plan on holding more meetings to improve communication within the community.
