Night Out for 2009 is coming on Tuesday, Aug. 4. You have until Friday, July 31, to register your block party event with the Seattle Police Department.
We’ll put up a post late this week with details about any local Night Out events. I saw a poster for the Franklin Avenue block party yesterday. Sounds like fun!
The block parties are part of the national Night Out Against Crime event. The idea is to help neighbors get to know each other and their neighborhood, and to celebrate their anti-crime efforts. If neighbors know each other, the idea goes, they will work more effectively together to help prevent crime.
When you register at the SPD web site, remember that if you live north of E. Lynn, you’re in the East Precinct. South of Lynn and you’re in the West Precinct.
