The Asian American Council (formerly known as Asian American Advisory Council) was originally conceptualized and created as a necessary bridge between the New York City Police Department and the diverse Asian American communities to create a platform from which the Asian American communities could voice their concerns over issues involving police relations and to educate the community about police tactics, procedures and policies. The purpose was to improve tactical and operational strategies in reducing crime in Asian American communities and in improving communications and law enforcement efforts.

 

As with the changing times, the council has evolved and expanded its scope to improve the quality of life of the people, address critical public policy issues, promotion of benevolent works and to promote friendship between local governments and international counterparts.

TSA Travel Tips Tuesday: Back to School Packing

Labor Day is quickly approaching, and that means many students will soon be on their way to college! When returning to school, people have a tendency to cram as much stuff as they can into their bags. It’s understandable and absolutely fine to jam pack your bags with all the things you need while you’re away. However, be careful not to pack any prohibited items!

Double Check: If you’re grabbing a bag, suitcase, briefcase, jacket and other itemsyou haven’t used in a while, be sure to give them the onceover so you don’t accidentally take something prohibited through the checkpoint. Many people who have brought guns, ammunition, knives, and other prohibited item say that they did so unknowingly.

Blades: Anything with blades should be placed in your checked baggage. This includes knives of all sizes, and blender and food processor blades. Nail clippers and corkscrews are not prohibited, but some have knife blades attached. This makes them prohibited.
               
Sporting Goods: Golf clubs, baseball bats (including the mini slugger bats), cricket bats, bows and arrows, hockey sticks, scuba knives, spear guns, etc., are all prohibited from being carried onto the plane. However, you can place them in your checked baggage.

Shaving Razors: You can get more info from our blog post on this subject where the pictures will answer your questions.


Makeup: Any liquid makeup cosmetics such as eyeliner, nail polish, liquid foundation, etc., should be placed in the 3-1-1 bag. That goes for perfume as well. Powder makeup is fine.

Beverages: Wine, liquor, beer, and all of your favorite beverages are permitted in your checked baggage. You can also bring beverages packaged in 3.4 oz or less bottles in your carry-on bags in the baggie.

Foods: Cakes, pies, bread, donuts, turkeys, etc., are all permitted. Here is a list of items that should be placed in your checked bags or shipped: cranberry sauce, creamy dips and spreads (cheeses, peanut butter, etc.), gift baskets with liquid or gel food items (salsa, jams and salad dressings), gravy, jams, jellies, maple syrup, oils and vinegars, sauces, soups, wine, liquor and beer.

The MyTSA App: Do you want TSA information anywhere, anytime?  Use the MyTSA app. Among the great features, there’s a “Can I Bring My…” tool. Want to know if you can pack a certain item? This is the tool for you. Type in the name of the item you’re curious about and it tells you if the item is permitted or not, along with packing tips... A wait time feature is also available. It relies on crowd sourcing, which means the more people who use it, the better.
