National Night Out – America’s Night Out Against Crime

Tonight is National Night Out – America’s Night Out Against Crime.
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

National Night Out is a great opportunity for all of us to show our solidarity with law enforcement and to strengthen our commitment to peace in our neighborhoods.

There are three events happening in our District and I encourage you to come out, bring your families and get to know your neighbors and community.
