National Night Out slated Tuesday

Staff report

National Night Out, Aug. 4 is a community-police awareness event held annually on the first Tuesday of August, nationwide. America’s night out against crime, the event raises the community – police relationship and awareness which was started in 1984.

Designed as a wonderful opportunity for communities nationwide to promote partnerships, crime prevention and neighborhood camaraderie. Sheriff Scott Kent states that while the one night out is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence; it does represent the kind of spirit, energy and determination that is helping to make a difference in neighborhoods and Crawford County as a whole. This one night can include a variety of events such as cookouts, block parties, kid parades, and exhibits.

It’s a night to celebrate safety and crime prevention successes and to strengthen programs for the next 364 days.

The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office would enjoy community participation throughout the County. If interested in hosting a neighborhood party or have any questions please contact Kent or Deputy Tim Ley at 419-562-7906.
