Neighborhoods throughout Lakewood are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 36th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer and more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
On Tuesday, Aug. 3, residents in neighborhoods throughout Lakewood are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities and other neighborhood watch events.
If you would like to be placed on a wait list in case of cancellations, please call Agent Dave Smidt at 303-987-7383
