06-09-10Good Neighbor Recognition for National Night
Boise, June 9, 2010 - The Boise Police
Department Crime Prevention Unit is adding an exciting new feature
to this year's National Night Out celebration, a good neighbor
award! The department is seeking nominations from Boise City
residents in preparation for National Night Out, a neighborhood
crime fighting event coming up August 3rd.
"It will be exciting to recognize those citizens
who go out of their way to be a good neighbor," said Charlene
Miller, Boise Police Neighborhood Watch Coordinator. "We know these
good neighbors do what they do not asking for anything in return,
but these folks deserve a heartfelt 'thank you'. Watching out
for our neighbors, keeping our neighborhoods safe and friendly is
what National Night Out is all about!"
Boise Police Crime Prevention experts are asking
neighbors to get together and consider if there's someone in their
neighborhood who goes above and beyond in helping
out. This person may mow the lawn as a courtesy to a
neighbor who is ill or elderly, watch
children, or help in planning neighborhood clean-ups
or block parties. The good work possibilities are endless and as
unique as the citizens who live in your area. The BPD wants to
recognize those in your neighborhood, from youth to senior
citizens and anyone in between, who make our neighborhoods
friendlier, safer places to live. The Boise Police Department will
recognize these outstanding neighbors at our National Night Out
parties Tuesday, August 3rd.
