            Woonsocket Police Department will be hosting National Night Out on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 at River Island Park from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.  Food, drinks, and entertainment will be provided free of charge. 

            NNO 2013 involved over 37.8 million people in 16,242 communities from all 50 states,

U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. National Night Out 2014 is expected to be the largest ever.

National Night Out, a yearlong community building campaign, is designed to: (1) heighten crime prevention awareness, (2) generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs, (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and (4) send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.          

            National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for America to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight for a safer nation. On NNO, we invite neighborhoods nationwide to join us and “give crime a going away party”.
