Suisun City — The Suisun City Police Department would like to invite citizens to the 29th Annual National Night Out Celebration. One night a year, everyone in the community is invited to join with friends and neighbors in block parties across Suisun City to focus on public safety awareness and basic safety prevention techniques. It’s all part of National Night Out 2012 a nationwide effort to build safer communities.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anticrime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and to send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and united in preventing crime, and taking back our neighborhoods.
From 5 – 8 p.m. on August 7th Suisun Police Department will be hosting a community block party at Carl E. Hall Park located at 609 Pintail Drive between the Suisun City Library, the Fire Department and the Salvation Army “KROC” Center. This night will bring together organizations committed to promoting community unification. There will be informational booths and safety demonstrations by local public safety agencies as well as children’s fingerprinting, jump houses, train rides, youth games and activities. All residents are invited to attend and join in the festivities.
In addition to the community block party, various Neighborhood Watch groups will too be hosting localized block parties for there areas. City Leaders, Fire Fighters and Police Officers will visit such parties throughout the evening.
Join your Neighborhood Watch in this celebration; if you do not have an active watch in your neighborhood there could not be a better time to hold your first meeting, so lock your doors, turn on your outside light and spend the evening with your neighbors, your friends and your public safety officials.
