As part of itís commitment to the community the Mukilteo Police Department has partnered with the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) in its National Night Out program.
The NATW is a nonprofit, crime prevention organization which works in cooperation with thousands of crime watch groups and law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Since 1981, NATW has been dedicated to the development, growth and maintenance of organized crime and drug prevention programs nationwide. NATW's network has grown to include over 6,500 crime, drug and violence prevention organizations.
National Night Out, 'America's Night Out Against Crime,' was introduced by the NATW in 1984. National Night Out 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
The first year of National Night Out 400 communities in 23 states participated in the event. In subsequent years, participation has grown steadily. The 24th Annual National Night Out, in August 2007, involved 35.4 million people in 11,310 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
While the traditional 'lights on' and front porch vigils remain a part of National Night Out, activities have expanded considerably over the years to include block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from police, festivals, neighborhood walks, safety fairs, contests, rallies and meetings.
If you are interested in participating, volunteering or wish to register your block party, feel free to contact the Mukilteo Police Department Crime Prevention Officer at (425) 263-8100 or e-mail: email@example.com.
