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 officers,

    "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 more on both, contact the Boise Police Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Charlene Miller at cmiller@cityofboise.org or 570-6070.
