“Night Out Against Crime” is a national event that encourages neighbors to gather and spend time together in an effort to heighten crime prevention/awareness and increase neighborhood safety. Porch lights are typically turned on as a symbolic gesture supporting crime prevention. When you register your event in Seattle, most non-arterial streets can be blocked off (without a fee), so you and your neighbors can take over your street.
This year Night Out is Tuesday, August 7th. You can register your block party and get help planning and publicizing your event at http://spdblotter.seattle.gov/2012/07/07/register-now-for-night-out-2012/
Last year there were many block parties in Pinehurst. Let’s do it again this year!
