National Night Out 2012

Friday, August 3, 2012 12:30 PM [RELEASE AT WILL]


On Tuesday, August 7, 2012, please join the City of Colorado Springs in celebrating safe communities by participating in 2012 National Night Out activities.


National Night Out is an annual event promoting crime prevention and drug prevention in communities across the country.


To show your support, simply turn on your porch lights and/or hold a neighborhood get-together on August 7th between 5 pm and 9 pm.  This is a unique way to display solidarity and strength in your neighborhood while sending a clear message to criminals that crime won’t be tolerated!


Join your neighbors and show your dedication in making your neighborhood safe and crime free!  Officers will be visiting block parties throughout the evening so be sure to contact your crime prevention officer if you are planning an event.
