07-21-10 National Night Out is Aug. 3rd!
Boise, July 21, 2010 - Dozens of Boise
neighborhoods are hauling out the bar-b-ques and lawn chairs and
gathering folks together to celebrate safe neighborhoods! It all
happens Tuesday, August 3rd for National Night Out, a night set
aside each year to promote Neighborhood Watch programs.
"Alert citizens watching out for each
other and their neighborhood is the best way we know of to prevent
and stop crimes." said Boise Chief of Police Michael Masterson."We
very much appreciate the support and cooperation citizens give to
"I can say with confidence that the
success we've had with decreasing crime rates and increased safety
of our community is thanks to the strong partnership between
officers and employees of this department and our citizens and
Neighborhood Watch groups," said Chief Masterson. "All of us should
celebrate the success of those partnerships."
It's still not too late to organize a
party for National Night Out, and it's always the right time to
organize a Neighborhood Watch group in your neighborhood. For
