From the City of Everett:
The City of Everett invites community members to participate in National Night Out Against Crime (NNO) on Tuesday, Aug. 7. This annual event brings neighbors together to foster stronger, more vibrant communities and build better connections among residents.
“We are proud to participate in this event every year,” said Everett Police Chief Dan Templeman. “Neighbor-to-neighbor networks are a great way to improve safety in a community, and this event also gives our officers and other staff a chance to interact directly with those we serve.”
In 1984, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out. Since then, the event has grown to more than 38 million people in approximately 16,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canada and military bases worldwide.
More than 10 NNO celebrations are currently planned in Everett. Once again this year, members of the Everett Police and Fire departments, as well as Emergency Management personnel and other City teams, will travel throughout the city to participate with neighborhoods and small block watch groups at their events.
“We encourage residents to start small by inviting a group of your neighbors to get together and learn more about each other,” said Wendy McClure, neighborhoods and community engagement coordinator. “Something as simple as a BBQ can be very effective in building new connections, and neighbors who know each other are more likely to look out for each other and to support each other when crime or natural disasters strike.”
