National Night Out 2014
The City of Moore and Moore Police Department cordially invites you to be a part of the 31th Annual National Night Out (NNO) crime prevention event, to be held on Tuesday, August 5th, from 7 to 9:00 p.m., at Target [720 SW 19th St]. Among the activities scheduled for the evening include Ambulance, Fire, and Police demonstrations. There will also be a limited number of free child bicycle helmets given away by Safe Kids Oklahoma.
National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. Let’s join forces on August 5th to promote police-community partnerships; crime, drug and violence prevention; safety; and neighborhood unity.
National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year round. The night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.”
We encourage you to lock your doors, turn on your outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Host a block party, have a cookout, conduct a flashlight walk etc . . . while sending a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are fighting back!
If you have any questions about NNO, or if your neighborhood organization would like assistance in planning your NNO event, please contact Sergeant David Dickinson at 793-5171, or by email at .
