National Night Out
Tuesday, August 5, 2014
On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, neighborhoods throughout Lodi are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “31st Annual National Night Out” crime/drug prevention event. From 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., residents throughout the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.
National Night Out is designed to:
• Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
• Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
• Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
• Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Many neighborhoods throughout Lodi will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, ice cream socials, bike rodeos, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and anti-crime rallies.
So join us again in giving a farewell party to crime and drugs!
