National Night Out
Tomorrow night, Tues., Aug. 7 is National Night Out 2012.
National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better.
This is something we, as a city would like to support next year. We would love to have residents plan a fun get-to-know-you event with their neighbors.
If you would be willing to help plan a "block party" for your neighborhood next August, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The city would love to be of support by sending elected officials to update neighbors on city issues, law enforcement to explain how to deter crime in your neighborhood, and even CERT team members to talk about neighborhood emergency response. You can also get help from the National Night Out website at natw.org.
If your neighborhood is participating in National Night Out this year, please let us know!
