Out Planning Kit for your Longmont neighborhood!
On Tuesday, August 7, from 6pm - 9pm, neighborhoods throughout Longmont will join with thousands of communities nationwide for the 29th annual National Night Out (NNO) crime and drug prevention event.
NNO is designed to raise awareness of cirme and drug prevention efforts, generate support for local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships, and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and watching out for each other.
NNO can be part of ongoing Neighborhood Watch activities or even a great way to get a Neighborhood Watch Program started. Neighborhood Watch programs help neighbors work together to make everyone's quality of life better and lessen crime.
During NNO, Longmont residents will lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors. many local neighborhoods are planning a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities, and other events. National Night Out can be as simple as bringing your lawn chairs out front and visiting with neighbors. Lemonade is optional!
A 2012 NNO planning kit is available to help Longmont residents jump start local activities.
National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and locally co-sponsored by the Longmont Police Department.
Please contact the Police Programs Coordinator at 303 - 774 - 4440 to get a National Night Out kit
or to learn how to start your own Neighborhood Watch.
