From a July 14 Piedmont police department press release:
The Piedmont Police Department and Piedmont Fire Department would like to invite our community to celebrate the 2021 National Night Out (NNO) with all of us. National Night Out brings neighbors together for the purpose of strengthening police-community partnerships and heightening crime prevention efforts. The event sends a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and united in preventing crime.
This year National Night Out will occur on:
Date: Tuesday, August 3, 2021
Time: 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
As part of National Night Out, members of the Piedmont Police Department and Piedmont Fire Department will visit registered neighborhood events throughout the city.
Although the traditional turning on of porch lights remains a strong part of the National Night Out campaign, additional neighborhood events will range from small potlucks and BBQs to community meetings and block parties. As these neighborhoods come together, the main objective continues to be one of the most effective crime prevention techniques of all – getting to know your neighbors.
Nationally, over 10,000 communities from all 50 states across America will celebrate National Night Out. Hopefully, you will be able to join us this year.
For more information, locations to visit or resources for the 2021 National Night Out, please contact Officer Nicole Casalnuovo (email@example.com) or Captain Chris Monahan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
