National Night Out - August 1, 2006
Mark your calendars August 1, 2006 from 5 p.m. 9 p.m. the Boulder City Police Department presents it’s fourth annual National Night Out event. National Night Out (NNO) has been in existence since 1984 when the National Association of Town Watch Executive Director, Matt A. Peskin, wanted to heighten awareness nationwide on issues involving crime and disorder.

|What started as merely a dream has culminated into an event of epic proportions involving over 10,000 communities and more than 34 million people representing every state.
The Boulder City Citizen’s Academy Alumni Association (BCCAAA) will once again spearhead this year’s event. Assisting them in the coordination of this auspicious event is Lead Dispatcher Jeannette Shook and Officer Todd Cazett. The event is guaranteed to be a showstopper with various booths offering information on everything from illegal narcotics to occupant protection. We will also be displaying several of our vehicles as well as having a K-9 demonstration. All of this leads up to the grand finale, which is still under intense negotiations, where the Boulder City Police Department will challenge the Boulder City Fire Department to a friendly game of softball.
While this is certainly a prescription for fun we must remember the purpose of the event is to educate and inform members of our community on various crime prevention methods and practices. We will showcase such programs as the Parent Project, Neighborhood Watch, Cellular Citizens on Patrol (CCOP) as well as providing materials on identity theft and illegal narcotics. A safe community is an educated community and it is clearly our goal to arm you with information relating to crime occurring in Boulder City.
We have long recognized that to have a positive impact on crime we need you, each and every member of the community, to stand up and be heard. Crime will not flourish in Boulder City if we work cooperatively and proactively to reduce the opportunities for crime to occur. On behalf of Chief Finn, I would personally like to invite everyone in Boulder City to Central Park for an evening of education and fun for the entire family.
Until next month, stay safe.
