National Night Out Aug. 5
July 30, 2008 - Knightstown Neighborhood Crime Watch is encouraging town and area residents to participate in a nationwide crime and drug prevention event Tuesday evening.
Aug. 5 marks the 25th anniversary for the National Night Out (NNO), which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and local crime prevention groups like the KNCW. More than 11,000 communities and over 35 million people from the U.S., U.S. territories, military bases and Canada, are expected to take part.
The NNO has four goals: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts; (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) let criminals know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
To participate locally in the NNO, residents in Knightstown and nearby areas are asked to lock their doors, turn on an outside light, and spend the evening, from 7-10 p.m., outside with neighbors and police. KNCW President Dan Webber said he hopes local participation levels will be high.
"I encourage all residents to turn their porch lights on," Webber said. "This is to show criminals that we are watching them. It's also an opportunity for people - not just those involved with (KNCW) - to come together as a community."
The KNCW's next monthly meeting and training session will be at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, in the classroom on the east side of the Hoosier Gym. For more information, contact Webber at 765-345-7146.
