Join the Sheriff’s Office for National Night Out
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JULY 18, 2014
CONTACT: Elana Pidgeon, Communications Intern
Media line: 425-249-6263
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office invites you to join us for National Night Out Tuesday, August 5, at one of six locations where some of our special operations and patrol personnel and equipment will be on hand.
National Night Out is held to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
“Connecting with neighbors is one of the community’s most powerful crime-fighting tools,” said Sheriff Ty Trenary. “Countless surveys show that when homeowners know their neighbors, they say they are more likely to report something suspicious and are confident their neighbors will do the same. Connected communities are safer communities.”
Here’s a list of community National Night Out events where the Sheriff’s Office will have a presence:
