Huntsville, Alabama (August 2, 2013) The National Association of Town Watch (NATW) has announced that the 30th Annual National Night Out (NNO) program will culminate on Tuesday, August 6, 2013.

The Huntsville Police Department, Huntsville Community Watch Association and Target are hosting a National Night Out Party in the Jaycees Building from 5 p.m. till 7 p. m. located at  2180 Airport Road. We would like to extend an invitation to anyone interested in helping to make Huntsville a safer place to live. There will be events for children, free food, live entertainment, free safety information and a good time for all ages.

 

National Night Out, a year-long community building campaign, is designed to: (1) Heighten crime prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The local Community Watch Association is also asking citizens to turn their porch lights on from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. to show support for the neighborhood Community Watch Associations of Huntsville.
