It has been shown that one of the best ways to fight crime is to know your neighbors and to watch out for one another. You can do that by participating in the annual Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, August 4th.
Night Out is an opportunity for you to organize a block party. By registering your event you win the right to close your street — and the Night Out page also has materials which you can print out, such as a street closure banner and invitations to neighbors.
Take this opportunity to gather on your block with a potluck, desserts, nametags and introductions, and a closed-street play area for the kids.
