National Night Out is fast approaching and we wanted to let everyone know a bit about the night and how it will be celebrated here in Arcadia. Celebrating it’s 31st year, National Night Out is a unique crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. This year the date for National Night Out is Tuesday, August 5, 2014 and here is what it is designed to do:
• 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.
This is America’s night out against crime! The City of Arcadia will be celebrating National Night Out on Thursday, August 7, 2014 and it will be in conjunction the Arcadia Summer Concert on the lawn series. Please stop by and show your support for Arcadia’s Police and Fire Departments who will be in attendance for this very special occasion. Free fingerprinting for the kids, crime prevention materials and other information will be available. NNO 2013 involved over 37.8 million people in 16,242 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. National Night Out 2014 is expected to be the largest ever.
