National Night Out To Take Place On Tuesday, August 2nd

LAKELAND, FL (July 23, 2010) – The Lakeland Police department would like to invite you to participate in the 28th Annual National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2, 2011. National Night Out is an annual event where neighborhoods, businesses, churches and law enforcement come together to show solidarity in the ongoing fight against crime and drugs. This event is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anticrime programs and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. This is a great opportunity to send a message to criminals letting them know that local neighborhoods are organized and fighting back!

Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, your  neighborhood can celebrate National Night Out with a variety of activities such as block parties, cookouts, parades, festivals and visits from local officials and police officers. It's free to participate in National Night Out so register your neighborhood today. The benefits your community will derive from participating in this event could extend well beyond this one night.
