National Night Out: August 6

Post Date:07/29/2019 11:06 AM

Neighborhoods throughout  Melbourne are invited to join over 38 million neighbors across 16 thousand communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.

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

From  time to time, neighbors  throughout  Melbourne  and   across  the nation are asked   to  lock  their doors, turn on their  front  porch  lights  and spend the  evening  outside  with  neighbors  and  law enforcement.

National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This  is a  night  for our  nation  to  stand  together  and  promote awareness,  safety,  and  neighborhood  unity. National  Night  Out   showcases   the  vital  importance   of police-community  partnerships  and  citizen involvement.  When law  enforcement and the community work closely together, some amazing things can happen.”

Please join the Melbourne Police Department, Mayor, City Manager and elected officials at one of the four neighborhoods that are hosting block parties for National Night Out on Tuesday, August 6th starting at 5:00 pm. Representatives from the following agencies will be in attendance: Melbourne Fire Department, Orlando-Melbourne International Airport Police, Melbourne Police Foundation, Melbourne Parks & Recreation, State Attorney’s Office, Parole and Probation, and DCF.
