From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
National Night Out is America’s night out against crime. It’s a wonderful opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police and community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out does represent the kind of spirit, energy and determination that is helping to make many neighborhoods safer places throughout the year. It is a night to celebrate safety and crime prevention successes – and to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.
Join in National Night Out – Tuesday, August 6th
It’s easy to participate in National Night Out, simply turn on your porch light! Step out to say hi, take a moment to meet your neighbors, or get together for a neighborhood cookout. Commit to looking out for one another in the upcoming year. You can make a difference in the fight against crime. Tweet photos of your neighborhood participation to @Harford_Sheriff and #NNO.
