Cars & trucks speeding on Hempstead ave daily, going past school stop signs complained to chief directly in the past but no action ever taken. Trying to get out of neighborhood blocks on Hempstead Ave is like trying to get on the highway. More enforcement of speeding laws needed .

Didn't the village of lynbrook spend a ton of money on their GPS units in the police officers cars? Is there any punishment or discipline for lack of work or productivity? We should ALL start questioning what really happens in the village that WE run for all of our tax dollars!

300 kids hanging out on waverly avenue as we speak.. Without Dr. B lynbrook schools have officially become Lord of the Flies... Lynbrook parents need to quit dropping their kids off at our homes by the 100's.. If there are no parents for these kids can the police do something ..this is ridiculous
