National Night Out August 5, 2014

The Redding Police Department, along with representatives of City government and the neighborhoods in Redding will participate in this year’s National Night Out celebration to be held on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. 

This is the 31st anniversary for National Night Out and the 26th year the Redding Police Department has participated. Last year approximately 37 million people in 15,110 communities around the world celebrated National Night Out.

Here in Redding, numerous block parties are organized. All citizens are encouraged to lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and join their neighbors outdoors. 

The evening is designed to: 

• Heighten crime and drug abuse awareness 
• Generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts 
• Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community relations 
• Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back 

City Council members, department heads, fire fighters, and police officers will be visiting block parties throughout the evening. There will be barbecues, ice cream socials, and potlucks planned by various block groups. 

Redding residents who would like to plan a neighborhood block party and would like law enforcement and City management to attend, should contact C.S.O. Mike Leonard at 530-225-4228.
