Participants Wanted for ‘National Night Out’

On Tuesday, August 2 (6 p.m. until 9 p.m.) the Antioch Police Crime Prevention Commission will be sponsoring “National Night Out” throughout the City of Antioch.

“National Night Out” is a program sponsored by law enforcement agencies across the country. The intent of this program is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and are fighting back.

The Antioch Police Crime Prevention Commission wishes to extend an invitation to all current Neighborhood Watch Groups to participate in “National Night Out” by organizing and presenting a program in their neighborhood.

The Antioch Police Crime Prevention Commission will award $100 certificates redeemable for food and refreshments to the first twenty five (25) Neighborhood Watch Groups who submit an application outlining their program for “National Night Out”.

If your neighborhood is not currently participating in a “Neighborhood Watch” Program, please contact the Antioch Police Department at 779-6878 for further information.

Applications for the “National Night Out” Program are available on the City of Antioch’s Crime Prevention website or by calling Lieutenant Robin Kelley at 779-6878. Please submit applications by Friday, June 24, 2011.

Georgia Koch, Chair
Antioch Police Crime Prevention Commission
