National Night Out set for Aug. 3


SUISUN CITY - The Suisun City Police Department is proud to sponsor National Night Out 2010 on Aug. 3 in Heritage Park.

One night a year, everyone in the community is invited to join with friends and neighbors in block parties across Suisun City to focus on public safety awareness and basic safety prevention techniques.

“This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and at the same time stand together against criminals who prey on the innocent,” said Chief Ed Dadisho.

It’s all part of National Night Out 2010, a nationwide effort to build safer communities through the old-fashioned small town virtues of getting to know your neighbors and watching out for each other.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and to send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and united in preventing crime, and taking back our neighborhoods.

From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on August 3rd, the Suisun City Police Department will host a community block party at Heritage Park located on Village Drive between Merganser and Pintail drives .

The event will bring together various organizations committed to promoting community unification. This extraordinary event will include a free BBQ, children’s jump houses (sponsored by Code Kid), as well as other youth games and activities. There will be informational booths and safety demonstrations by local public safety agencies. All residents are invited to attend and join in the festivities.

In addition to the community block party, various Neighborhood Watch groups also will host localized block parties for their areas. City leaders, Firefighters and Police Officers will visit such parties throughout the evening. To register an individual block party, contact Pam Greenwood at 707-435-2748 or pgreenwood@suisun.com by July 27.

Lock your doors, turn on your outside light and spend the evening with your neighbors, your friends and your public safety officials. We all have to start somewhere, let’s make this the first step together.
