One of Northeast Community Police Station’s events was held in the parking lot of the Walgreen’s located on Sunset Boulevard. This event had free screenings for glaucoma provided by the Lions Club, food giveaways and plenty of activities for the kids such as face painting, jumpers and joust.
In the Rampart Area a rally was held outside the Police Station. This event featured live entertainment by local performers, and plenty of free food provided by local eateries. An estimated 500 people were in attendance.
These were just two of approximately 50 city-wide events held as part of the National Night Out campaign. In its 27th year, the National Night Out campaign is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
The Department would like to thank all of the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and people in attendance who helped make National Night Out 2010 a success!
