National Night Out Against Crime

Posted 8/7/2012 12:20 PM by JMCGRATH

Tuesday, August 7, 2012, in the afternoon and evening, neighborhoods all over Spokane County will be gathering for the 29th Annual National Night Out Against Crime sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW).

Citizens, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations, apartment complexes, homeowner’s associations, military bases, and more will be out tonight, connecting with neighbors and the community in an effort to reduce crime.

Everyone is invited to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, keep watch over the neighborhood and enjoy a neighborhood potluck, BBQ, ice cream social, safety fair and more.

Local agencies such as Law Enforcement, Fire Departments, S.C.O.P.E. (Sheriff’s Community Oriented Policing Effort), and other public officials will try to stop by throughout the afternoon and evening.

Target is once again the national corporate sponsor for National Night Out. At the local level, the Valley Target is having a special Safety Fair from 1-3pm today. FAFB, Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue, the Fire Dept and more will be on hand for questions and demonstrations. Come join us!
