According to a release from the Westminster Police Department:
WESTMINSTER COMMUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE IN 2019 NATIONAL NIGHT OUT
On Tuesday, August 6, 2019, seven neighborhoods throughout the City of Westminster will join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 36th Annual National Night Out event. National Night Out (NNO) is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The National Association of Town Watch (NATW) sponsors NNO in partnership with law enforcement and community groups. Westminster neighborhoods will host a variety of special events, including block parties, cookouts, youth activities, and visits from police officers, fire/EMS and elected officials.
Chief Thomas Ledwell states, “National Night Out is a great opportunity for community members to get to know their local police officers and fellow neighbors during a fun event designed to promote crime prevention awareness. We encourage everyone who is able to participate to bring your families out and enjoy your local neighborhood event with us.”
In a recent newsletter, Delegate Susan Krebs wrote:
Come out and join your neighbors for National Night Out. NNO is a FREE Family Event bringing neighbors together to promote a positive community-police relationship- making our communities safer. The fun- filled event hosts vendors, food, and interactive activities for kids, while learning about the services of the Police and Emergency Services.
Residents in Carroll County are invited to join our First Responders at one of the locations below. You are encouraged to lock your home, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening meeting and greeting neighbors and police.
