Give Crooks A Going Away Party!
On Tuesday August 5th, the Redmond Police Department is asking neighborhoods to participate in the 31st Annual National Night Out Against Crime. The police department, fire department, city council, mayor, and others will attend parties between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. If you've never participated it's a great event for fun, friends, and community! If you don't know your neighbors--this is a great opportunity to meet them.
Nationally there will be thousands of neighborhood parties, cookouts, ice cream socials, dessert parties, and parades. Other neighborhoods will host flashlight walks, safety fairs, poster and essay contests, and neighborhood meetings. This event is fun for all and gives criminals a "Going Away" party by showing a stand our community takes against crime.
Please register your event no later than Wednesday, July 23rd by using the online form once you have all pertinent details. If you have questions contact Officer Tom Goepfert (firstname.lastname@example.org; 425-556-2541).
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
- Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
