National Night Out to Unite City Police and Community for Crime Prevention

Meet Neighbors, Connect with Police Officers on Aug. 6

Celebrate our city’s neighborhoods on Tuesday, Aug. 6 as the Rockville City Police Department and Rockville communities take part in National Night Out.

Now in its 41st year, National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. It aims to raise awareness about crime and drug prevention, generate support for anti-crime programs and strengthen community spirit and community policing partnerships. Neighborhoods will host block parties featuring cookouts, bounce houses, carnival games and giveaways.

McGruff the Crime Dog will stop by several block parties to spread his anti-crime and anti-drug message. The Mayor and Council and RCPD officers will also visit many of the gatherings.

Residents are invited to turn on outdoor lights as part of the traditional display of front porch vigils, sending the message to criminals that neighborhoods are fighting back against crime.

For more information, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/nno. To register your block party, contact Cpl. Ronnie Crowe at 240-314-8974 or [email protected].
