National Night Out
Tuesday, August 7, 2018
National Night Out is an annual nationwide event for communities to join forces against crime! Residents are encouraged to organize get-togethers, cookouts or block parties and leave outdoor and porch lights on in an effort to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back! The Lafayette Police and Fire Departments visit these events to generate support for local anticrime programs. National Night Out strengthens neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships. Contact Crime Prevention Technician Robert Wilson if you would like police/fire to visit your neighborhood August 7!
