Tonight is the Night out against crime

Everyone wants a safe neighborhood, and this event is a good way to learn how to end up with that result.
Neighborhoods throughout Smyrna are invited to join with thousands of communities nationwide on Tuesday, August 7th, to join us in Giving Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party.

'National Night Out' is designed to:

*Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
*Generate support and participation in crime efforts
*Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations
*Send the message that your neighborhood is a safe place to live

‘National Night Out' is a great opportunity for citizens, law enforcement and other public safety officials to join forces. Events are planned to promote crime prevention and drug prevention awareness and to strengthen the police - community partnership. We encourage neighborhoods to come together and send the message that we are all working together to prevent crime and keep our neighborhoods safe. On August 7th, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., residents are asked to turn on their porch lights, lock their doors and spend the evening outside with their neighbors, police officers, EMS, and fire fighters.

National Night Out will be at the Lee Victory Park on Sam Ridley Parkway, Tuesday, August 7th starting at 5pm and wrapping up at 8pm. We invite everyone to come out and join us. If you would like to volunteer, set up a booth or participate in any way contact SPD Sgt. Andy Miller at 459-9742 x7412 or the email link above.
