National Night Out schedule for Tuesday

Sunday, August 1, 2010

It's time for the "National Night Out" at the Y of Clay County.

Brazil City Police and the Clay County Sheriff's departments work together to organize this year's event, which is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m., Tuesday.

Originated in 1984, the non-profit crime prevention organization National Association of Town Watch (NATW) sponsors the program in conjunction with law enforcement agencies to heighten awareness and strengthen participation in local anticrime efforts. The NATW has grown to include more than 6,500 crime, drug and violence prevention organizations. National Night Out is designed to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, while heightening crime and drug prevention awareness.

Although preparations continue to be made and organizations are still getting involved, organizers confirmed several informational booths and demonstrations are scheduled to be at the event, including:

* Games, a dunking booth, air bounce house and coloring books for the kids,

* Demonstrations by the BCPD and the CCSD K-9 Units, and

* Several local organizations and businesses will be on hand to provide safety information and will provide door prizes and goodies for people attending the event.
