This was the 20th year southwest Rochester has participated in National Night Out.
A Shutterfly album of this year's event has been posted at: 140815 National Night Out 2014
National Night Out is designed to:
-heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
-generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs;
-strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and
-send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
This National Night Out event was sponsored by Target, the Southwest Quadrant and the SouthWest Common Council's Public Safety Committee. Frances Johnson was again the coordinator for the event.
We need participants to help organize next year's event. For more information, contact Frances N. Johnson at (585)328-4838 or Lt. Robert Hill at (585) 428-8808.
