‘Stop and Shake’ campaign promotes better police, community relationship in Yonkers
Yonkers police officers hit the streets Thursday to promote better community relations.
Officers stopped residents on McLean Avenue and shook their hands as part of the Stop and Shake campaign.
Hector Santiago, of Yonkers, is behind the initiative.
Santiago and the police department teamed up with How Sweet It Is candy store to hand out cupcakes during the event. The event also featured face painting, in the hope of catching the public's attention.
While the campaign happens regularly, it is the first one on the city's east side.
