National Night Out 2015

NNO15_logoOn August 4th, 2015 from 7pm-8pm, the Herron-Morton Place National Night event will provide a structured walk with the presence of three experts, stationed at homes in HMP, who will answer your questions about crime and safety, code enforcement and the law.  Look for them at:

2050 N. Alabama – Dimitri Kyser from the Department of Public Works Code Enforcement division will ‘talk trash,’ including what can be done with the recent rat problem.
1721 N. Alabama – Former neighbor and attorney Jennifer Jones from the Marion County Prosecutor’s office will answer your questions about legal issues and crime

1647 N. Alabama – Officer Keven Lauerman, a leader of the Neighborhood Safety Patrol, will answer your questions about the mission and operation of the safety patrols.  Applications to join will be available.

Once upon a time, we kept our porch lights on. We opened the door even if we didn’t know who rang the bell. And we could always leave the back door unlocked during the day.

National Association of Town Watch is the nation’s premiere non-profit crime prevention organization dedicated to the development and promotion of crime prevention in communities across the nation.

NATW is a network of law enforcement agencies, neighborhood watch groups, civic groups, state and regional crime prevention associations and concerned citizens. Through that network, NATW was able to launch the annual National Night Out campaign.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. Together, we are making that happen.

National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Neighborhoods across the nation host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.
