On Tuesday, August 2nd our Oak Creek, Wauwatosa and Greenfield locations participated in National Night Out within their respective communities.
National Night Out is an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program used to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in the fight for a safer nation. Activities typically include live music, various family and children’s activities with crime prevention and safety messages, a flashlight walk at dark, and fireworks to end the night.
National Night Out is designed to:
- Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
- Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Our caring staff was on hand at Hart Park in Wauwatosa, providing face painting to the children, and even some adults, who came out to participate in the event.
We would like to say a big THANK YOU to the Wauwatosa, Oak Creek, and Greenfield Police Departments and communities for letting us participate in this great event! We hope to see you all out there next year!
