Night Out Against Crime Events All Across Everett This Tuesday

NNO

Aaron Snell and Colby will be visiting neighborhoods again this year for National Night Out.

So far nearly a dozen neighborhoods have signed up to host events Tuesday night in the annual Night Out Against Crime. Events range from ice cream socials to car shows, potlucks and music. Most importantly it’s a chance to meet your neighbors and get to know them a little better so you can help watch out for each other and as they say “Take a bite out of crime.” Here’s more information from the City of Everett…

The City of Everett’s Office of Neighborhoods and the Everett Police Department invite the public to participate in National Night Out Against Crime, on Tuesday, Aug. 4 to help bring neighbors together to foster stronger, more vibrant communities.

On this night, neighbors across the community will take part in the 32nd annual National Night Out Against Crime celebrations in Everett and Snohomish County. National Night Out (NNO) is intended to heighten awareness of how neighbors can help prevent crime, strengthen neighborhood relationships and form police-community partnerships to let criminals know crime won’t be tolerated.

In 1984, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out. Since then, the event has grown to over 37 million people in 15,325 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canada and military bases worldwide.

“We are pleased to see so many Everett residents organizing National Night Out events for their neighbors,” Wendy McClure, coordinator for the Office of Neighborhoods, said.

Once again, members of the Everett Police Department, Fire Department, Emergency Management, Office of Neighborhoods and other city staff will be travelling throughout the city to participate with neighborhoods and small block watch groups in their NNO celebrations. There are more than 20 events happening across the city hosted by Everett residents.

“Neighbors who know each other are more likely to look out for each other, to prevent crime and to help each other when crime or natural disasters strike,” McClure said. “Events can be as simple as getting together with your neighbors for an hour or inviting the whole neighborhood to have a barbecue and games.”
