At a time when reports of auto thefts and home break-ins are increasing, it is very important to get to know your neighbors. Neighbors knowing neighbors is one of the most effective ways to prevent crime.
National Night Out (NNO) is coming up on Tuesday, August 1. Each year, neighborhoods in our area organize block parties on that evening.
Residents are asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend an evening outside with neighbors.
Recently, some cities have started to refer to this event as “National Night to Unite”; its new purpose is to celebrate/strengthen neighborhood and community partnerships.
Please note that registration of your National Night Out or National Night to Unite events with your city may have a deadline of as early as July 21.
