Lake Forest Parks' Night Out Against Crime, Aug 6

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Join with us in celebration of National Night Out on August 6, 2013. National Night Out is “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” a coordinated effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie, and generally to send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

This is the 30th anniversary of the event. In Lake Forest Park, neighbors have gathered for the last 16 years primarily to get to know each other and share ideas. Often it happens over a potluck dinner: sometimes at a house but more often in a block-party in the street.

Our Police Department encourages every neighborhood to have some sort of get-together in support of this national event, because knowing your neighbors is one of the strongest crime deterrents a neighborhood and community can have. This year, Police Chief Steve Sutton and his staff will attend as many events as possible.

If you are planning or want to have an event, contact Crime Prevention Coordinator Casey Krzyminski 206-957-2880. Registration forms and more information are available on the City web-site or at the police department. Additional information about the National Event.
