Arvada Police want to be part of your neighborhood’s Night Out Against Crime
National Night Out (NNO) is a police/community partnership designed to help build safer neighborhoods and communities. Held each year on the first Tuesday in August, the event this year will take place on Tuesday, August 7, 2012.
NNO brings together involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials to fight crime through a safe, easy-to-participate event that builds community.
The Arvada Police want to be a part of your community’s event. Members of the department will come to your neighborhood to talk about crime-prevention programs and discuss other ways to strengthen neighborhood spirit and build police-community partnerships.
Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, neighbors are invited to work together to create block parties, cookouts, neighborhood parades and flashlight walks.
NNO has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program that heightens crime and drug prevention awareness. It sends a strong message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
If you are interested in hosting a National Night Out block party or would like more information about participating, please call 720-898-6883.
