Cleveland Police Department to Observe National Night Out
CLEVELAND, September 27, 2012 - On Tuesday, October 2, 2012, the Cleveland Police Department will observe National Night Out. “This is a national event America’s Night Out Aganist Crime”. The purpose of National Night Out is to build a stronger police-community partnership.
National Night Out heightens crime prevention awareness, and generates local support of anticrime programs. Police agencies nationwide believe this is a positive way to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relations; and sends a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
On Tuesday October 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., citizens are encouraged to turn on their front porch lights at dusk, walk outside, and visit with their neighbors. Additional officers will be out in the neighborhoods on this evening to answer questions, or listen to any concerns citizens may have. “This is a great opportunity for citizens to meet the officer’s who serve them, and too help support the annual event”. Officers will have safety and awareness educational material on board their patrol cars. Please show some positive Cleveland pride in our great community.
National Night Out has proven to be an effective, inexpensive, and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood sprit, and police relations in our fight for safer communities.
We look forward to your support, and participation of National Night Out on Tuesday, October 4, 2011.
