Is your neighhood part of National Night Out?

National Night Out is an organized annual event designed to bring neighbors together not only to improve crime prevention awareness and family emergency preparedness, but also to strengthen neighborhood spirit. Neighbors get reintroduced, connect names with faces and get acquainted with city officials.

From 5 until 7 p.m., Tuesday, August 5, residents are asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors or come join the Mercer Island Police at the Sculpture Park for a hot dog cookout.

If you would like to register your neighborhood for National Night Out, contact Police Dept. Specialist Janelle Timm at 275-7933.
