[ARCHIVED] National Night Out - Tues Aug 6th 2013

NNO 2013 Hemet Police Target National Night Out 2013

2013 National Night Out

The Hemet Police Department, in conjunction with Target Super Center, will again participate in this year’s National Night Out on Tuesday, August 6th. The event begins at 4pm and will be held in the Hemet Target Super Center parking lot. Hemet Police Department will bring several items for display, coloring books, balloons, & fingerprint kits for children.

Hemet Police Chief Dave Brown said, “Anytime we can take a few hours to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community-business partnerships, we are all over it. We are looking forward to another evening in the community on August 6th.”

Hemet Police Officers, Explorers, and Volunteers will again join the National Night Out Campaign which is designed to:
(1) Heighten crime prevention awareness.
(2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs.
(3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
(4) Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, many cities and towns celebrate National Night Out with a variety of special city-wide and neighborhood events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, festivals, visits from local officials and law enforcement, safety fairs, and youth events.

National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for America to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight for a safer nation. On NNO, we invite neighborhoods nationwide to join us and give crime a going away party”.

Representatives from Kona Ice, Juice it Up!, American Medical Response, The Press Enterprise, ADT Home Security will also be on-hand with Hemet HomeInstead Senior Care cooking up hot dogs donated by Target.

National Night Out occurs in over 15,000 communities across the country.

• The program began in 1983 as a way to unite citizens in support of crime prevention to create safer neighborhoods and has grown into a public safety engagement program that brings people together in support of safer communities.
