Tuesday, August 6th, is the 14th annual National Night Out event in Green River, sponsored by the Green River Police Department. National Night Out, which is a yearlong community building campaign, is designed to
1.) Heighten crime prevention awareness
2.) generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs
3.)strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and
4.) send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
I am encouraging people to organize neighborhood block parties during the evening of August 6th. If you are interested in receiving more information about National Night Out or to sign up for a block party, please contact the Green River Police Department at 872-0555 and ask for Chris Steffen or Denise Arellano.
