Police invite residents to celebrate

Submitted By Officer Trish Young, Milpitas PD

The Milpitas Police Department encourages Milpitas residents to host or attend neighborhood parties on Thursday, August 4, 2011, to celebrate National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime." This year will mark the 28th year that citizens across the country have gathered with their neighbors to take a stand against crime and drugs.

The 28th Annual National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and locally co-sponsored by the Milpitas Police Department. Over 15,110 communities and 37 million people are expected to participate in National Night Out activities across North America.

National Night Out is an excellent way to build neighborhood unity and strengthen police-community partnerships. Over the past eleven years, Milpitas residents have used National Night Out as a tool to initiate local Neighborhood Watch groups or get reacquainted with their neighbors. Most gatherings are neighborhood potluck dinners or ice cream socials. Officers from the Milpitas Police Department visit the individual gatherings, meet with residents, and distribute crime prevention information. Police stickers and police car tours are a favorite for the children attending the events.

Milpitas residents interested in hosting a National Night Out neighborhood party or to obtain information should contact Officer Trish Young at (408) 586-2538 or email tlyoung@ci.milpitas.ca.gov at the Milpitas Police Department's Community Relations Unit.
