The Sterling Police Department announces Tuesday, August 3rd, as this year’s National Night Out from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.
The event this year will consist of asking our neighbors to create a National Night Out atmosphere right in their own front yard or porch. Turn on a porch light (preferably blue); make a yard sign with an anti-crime slogan, referencing National Night Out, to show solidarity against crime; or get creative and come up with your own idea.
The goal is to promote strong police community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. August 1st-3rd, submit a photo of your display through Facebook Messenger to the City of Sterling’s or Brinkley Sterling’s Facebook pages; make sure to include your address in the message. The PD will post your photos on their Facebook pages. During the night of August 3rd, Brinkley and her Community Service Officer will be making visits to the participants.
National Night Out was introduced in August of 1984 through an already established network of law enforcement agencies, neighborhood watch groups, civic groups, state and regional crime prevention associations and volunteers across the nation. The first annual National Night Out involved 2.5 million neighbors across 400 communities in 23 states.
