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

Along with Crime and Neighborhood Block Watch information, there will be live entertainment and many activities for families, including inflated jumpers and face painting for the kids, safety information for families, fire trucks and firemen, etc. FREE hot dogs, corn, watermelon and coke will be served.

Bring your whole family and enjoy the free food, fun and games, and best of all learn how to “SAY GOODBYE TO CRIME AND DRUGS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!”

"You can make a differnence in your neigborhood by attending a party near you!"

-Mayor Micah D. Cawley
