National Night Out - August 4, 2015
National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better.
If your neighborhood will be hosting an event for this year's NNO and would like representatives from your Sheriff's Office to visit, please download and return the Pledge Form (PDF) by Friday, July 24, 2015.
