The 32nd annual National Night Out event in Puyallup is set for 5 to 9 p.m. Aug. 4. National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the Puyallup Police Department and the National Association of Town Watch.
This event will involve more than 16,540 communities from the United States, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world, with more than 38 million people expected to participate.
In Puyallup’s event, residents throughout Puyallup are invited to lock their doors, turn on the outside lights and spend the evening outside with their neighbors and the police. Many neighborhoods throughout Puyallup will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, potlucks, ice cream socials and visits with the police and fire departments, emergency preparedness agencies and city officials.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and send a clear message to criminals, letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime.
To coordinate a visit from the Puyallup Police Department for a local neighborhood National Night Out event, contact Crime Prevention Coordinator Lisa Isaacs at (253) 841-5531 or email@example.com. All registrations are due by July 29.
