26th Annual National Night Out expected to be largest in L.A. ever; 47 community events planned

The LAPD is going all out to support the 26th Annual National Night Out (NNO) program with the wholehearted support of the LAPPL.  A total of 47 community events are planned this Tuesday in neighborhoods across the city. Click here to download a listing of all the events from the LAPPL website.  Information on events in other cities can be found on the NNO national website.

National Night Out is part of a year-long community building campaign designed to:

     ·     Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
     ·     Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs
     ·     Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
     ·     Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

Along with the traditional outside lights and front-porch vigils, L.A. is joining with cities and towns across the nation to observe National Night Out with a variety of special citywide and neighborhood events, such as block parties, cookouts, parades, festivals, visits from local law enforcement, safety fairs and youth events.

NNO 2008 involved 37 million people in 15,449 communities from all 50 states. NNO 2009 is expected to be the largest ever in L.A. and across the nation.  Find an NNO event in your neighborhood and get involved in this worthwhile and effective police-community partnership. We’ll see you there!
