Police to host ‘National Night Out’ Aug. 1
–The Paso Robles Police Department has announced that they are joining forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 34th annual “National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored by the Paso Robles Police Department and Emergency Services Department, will involve over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world.
National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local public safety partners.
This event will be held on Tuesday, August 1st, from 6-8 p.m. in the City Park at 1100 Pine Street. The event will include police and fire vehicle displays, police K9 demonstrations, and opportunities for community members to meet the staff of the Paso Robles Police Department and Emergency Services Department. Food & refreshments will be provided.
National Night Out is designed to:
•Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
•Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
•Strengthen police-community partnerships;
•Send a message to criminals letting them know that our community is organized and fighting back; and
•It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors and public safety personnel even better.
We all have ownership in our community and feel we can better reach out to our citizens by joining them in this relaxed atmosphere. There is a direct relationship between the livability of a community and to what degree its citizens choose to be involved.
