Wyandotte ‘National Night Out' Aug. 6



Wyandotte ‘National Night Out' Aug. 6

The Wyandotte Tribal/Municipal Police Department and the Wyandotte Community will be hosting the annual ‘National Night Out' event with a Community Block Party Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wyandotte High School.

The evening events will consist of burgers, hot dogs, prize drawings and much more. Last year the event drew around 250 participants.

National Night Out is celebrated each year on the first Tuesday of August. This year will be the 30th Anniversary of communities coming together with local law enforcement to form stronger partnerships.

The introduction of National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime," began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie, and to send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states.

Annually, over 15,000 communities across the United States join forces and celebrate National Night Out. A nationwide attendance of 37 million people from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide will come together in an effort to promote a Police Community Partnership through crime, drug and violence awareness prevention and neighborhood unity.
