It’s that time of year again when we gather together to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send the message to criminals that our neighborhood is organized and united!

On Tuesday,August 5, 2014, both 79th and the 81st Precincts will host National Night Out celebrations that include games, free food, face-painting, carnival rides, music and community organization vendors!

National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

The traditional “lights on” campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities including, but not limited to, block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from emergency personnel, rallies and marches, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations and seminars, in effort to heighten awareness and enhance community relations.
