Tomorrow, August 7, is National Night Out. This is a nationwide crime and drug prevention program that is jointly sponsored by Target Stores, the National Association of Town Watch and the U.S. Department of Justice.
In the Warrendale area, our local National Night Out event will happen tomorrow evening from 5 - 9 p.m. across the street from the Northwest District of the Detroit Police Department (11450 Warwick). This is just north of the neighborhood.
The focus of National Night Out is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness as well as
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
- Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
National Night Out is your Warrendale Tip of the Week.
