Night out against crime events on Aug. 4

Join Sheriff Al Lamberti and the BSO family to observe the 26th annual “National Night Out Against Crime,” an annual event designed to strengthen neighborhoods through police and community partnerships. National Night Out aims to heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and, most importantly, send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are organized. This is a perfect opportunity to get to know the BSO deputies who patrol your streets and unite with your neighbors in the fight against crime. As a show of support on August 4, citizens are encouraged to leave their porch lights on as a show of support.
In 2008, more than 37 million people including citizens, law enforcement, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from all 50 states participated in National Night Out.
