America's Night Out
Against Crime!

When: Tue Aug 06th, 2013 7-10PM
Where: Your Neighborhood!

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of National Night Out by hosting an event in your neighborhood on August 6th.

Last year millions of people, from every state, across 15,000 communities participated in events to help make communities safe and raise awareness about anticrime programs.

National Night Out is a time when individuals and groups are encourgaged to gather together after dark in parks and other public places for wholesome activities. The idea is to symbolically reclaim our public spaces by using them, encouraging other people to use them and making the space feel safe, and discouraging illegal and anti-social activity.

Go ahead -- invite your neighbors -- gather on someone's lawn or porch and turn-on the lights! Celebrate National Night Out 2013. Take a stand.

Don't let crime control your neighborhood.
