On Tuesday, August 6, neighborhoods throughout Rushford, Minn. and Peterson, Minn. are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “30th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW)and co-sponsored locally by Tri-City Neighbors Connecting, will involve over 15,704 communities from all 50 states, U.S.territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 37.5 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime.”

NNO is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participate 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.

From 7 to 10 pm on August 6, residents in neighborhoods throughout Rushford/Peterson and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, and visits from police, etc.

National Project Coordinator Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for America to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. On NNO,we invite neighborhoods to join us in Giving Crime & Drugs A Going Away Party.”
