Written by Mark Chreene on October 11, 2021
Councilman Michael Roy, Chairperson, for National Night Out, along with Mayor Terry L. Gardner, Police Chief Steve Cropper and the other members of the City Council, invite neighborhoods city-wide to support the theme, “Give Neighborhood Crime & Drugs A Going Away Party”.
Neighborhoods throughout the City of Minden are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nation-wide for the Annual National Night Out (NNO), crime and drug prevention event.
NNO is designed to (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts: (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
On Tuesday, October 12, 2021, from 6-8 p.m., residential neighborhoods throughout the City of Minden and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.
The NNO campaign is a way to build neighborhood unity and strengthen police-community partnerships.
