PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE
PASADENA, Calif. – The Pasadena Police Department is joining other law-enforcement agencies and communities throughout the nation by throwing a city-wide “National Night Out” block party on Tuesday, August 7th from 7 – 10 p.m. The Pasadena Police Department is inviting the community to participate and show their support of crime and drug prevention by organizing a simple neighborhood front yard party, potluck, or informal Neighborhood Watch Meeting on National Night Out.
The police department is collaborating with Kings Villages and Community Arms to host the main event on Hammond Street, between Fair Oaks Avenue and Morton Avenue. There will be booths, vendors, activities, and food, from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
The National Association of Town Watch, a non-profit organization, designed National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” is to strengthen neighborhood spirits and police and community relationships. Additionally, it will heighten awareness and send a strong message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized, and are fighting back against drugs and crime.
Pasadena Police representatives will visit as many registered neighborhood parties as possible. Residents, who would like to have a Pasadena Police representative stop by their “National Night Out” party, should simply contact the Community Services Section at (626) 744-4551.
