Join your neighbors in the fight against crime!
The 26th annual National Night Out is Tuesday, August 4, 2009.
NNO is an annual event that is designed to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relationships while heightening crime-and-drug prevention awareness.
Please help us celebrate by joning your neighbors and hosting or attending an event in your neighborhood on Tuesday, August 4, 2009.
NNO was introduced in 1984 as a unique crime and drug prevention event and as a way to promote neighborhood unity and police-community partnerships. (poster's note: redundant much?
This is a great opportunity to partner with the City of Richmond and the Richmond Police Department to "take a bite out of crime." Show that you support the effort to take back our streets and let our criminals know that we will not tolerate crime.
Celebrate NNO with a variety of events and activities such as:
- block parties
- visits from local police and sheriff departments
- parades, exhibits
- flashlight walks
- youth programs
For more information on NNO or to register your event, please visit nno.org. Please check out the MDA website for information on how to register your event with Richmond Police Department or call Community Care at 646-4395. If your event is registered by July 23, it will be counted in the total number of events held. Also, if you register your event on time with the City, a police officer will try to attend your event.
Of course, you need not register your event, but who can pass up a friendly visit from the police officers who work so hard to keep us safe? Please contact MDA Safety Chair Brandon Mears about your event so that he will stop by to offer MDA recognition! Remember to submit pictures of the fun for our fall newsletter.
