National Night Out is a community effort to reduce crime and the fear of crime in our neighborhoods. This year’s celebration is slated for Tuesday, August 2, 2011.
Residents of Arvada are asked to join Americans across the country by turning on their porch lights to turn off crime.
People across the national will attend various celebrations on August 2. The biggest National Night Out celebration event in Arvada will be held in the Olde Town square (near Ralston Road/Olde Wadsworth) and will be in full swing by 5 p.m. Visitors will be treated to live music, hamburgers from the grill and super sweets.
Members of the Arvada Police Department will start their evening of visiting National Night Out celebrations at the Olde Town Square at 5:00 p.m. and then travel to several other block parties throughout the city during the evening.
“National Night Out is a great opportunity to meet our residents in a festive environment and to discuss ways to prevent crime as a community,” said Commander Kathy Foos of the Arvada Police Department.
