James City County Police plan for National Night Out
On Tuesday, Aug. 6, James City County neighborhoods are invited to join forces with over 15,000 communities nationwide for the “30th Annual National Night Out”.
National Night Out heightens crime and drug prevention awareness; generates support for local anti-crime efforts; strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and sends a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
During the evening, residents throughout the County are asked to lock their doors, turn on porch lights and spend the evening outdoors with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods are already making plans for block parties, cookouts, and visits from James City County Police and McGruff the Crime Dog.
To arrange for James City County Police Officers to attend your community event, contact Master Police Officer Kelly Saponaro at 757-603-6023 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 26 or register online at jamescitycountyva.gov/police/Nationalnightoutsurvey.html.
