The ParentPatrol App helps parents and caretakers report inappropriate behavior near kids at playgrounds and parks. FREE to DOWNLOAD!

Parent Patrol App on iPhone and Android

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.

Ron Kim and Parent Patrol App

From Ron Kim

NY Assemblyman Ron Kim launched ParentPatrol 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.
