We are seeing a rising trend of inappropriate behavior at public parks, particularly near children’s playgrounds. According to a Wall Street Journal article from August 8, 2016, “major crime in New York City parks are up 23%.” In places like Bowne Playground in Flushing, a children’s playground, there were two back-to-back cases of child molestation in one week in July 2016. Even though the regulations are clear in stating that adults without children cannot loiter around kids playgrounds, local authorities often do not enforce this law due to public complaints or lack of personnel. Assemblyman Ron Kim launched the ParentPatrol App to combat this problem by empowering parents and caregivers to monitor and report inappropriate behavior at kids playgrounds. Unlike the City’s 3-1-1 system, this app is hyper-localized and engages all community stakeholders, including elected officials and advocates, to combat unwanted behavior near our children.
