National Night Out Celebrations To Be Held on Tuesday, August 2
July 25, 2016
National Night Out (NNO), a nationwide community policing awareness event, is held annually to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. Last year, over 37 million people participated in NNO events across 15,000 communities in the United States.
There will be two NNO celebrations held in Revere on Tuesday, August 2. One will take place at Curtis Park at the Garfield School (176 Garfield Ave), sponsored by Councillor Ira Novoselsky; it will begin at 5:30 PM. The other will be led at the West Revere School Complex (107 Newhall St.), hosted by the City of Revere and Mayor Brian Arrigo. The event at the West Revere Complex will also begin at 5:30 PM, and will be held in conjunction with the Revere Police Department, Revere Fire Department Revere Recreation Department, and Department of Public Works.
Both locations will feature entertainment, kids’ activities, a DJ, free hot dogs, and information from the Revere Police and other community groups. Residents will have the opportunity to meet and interact with police officers and other community leaders. Kids in particular are encouraged to meet officers and learn more about what the Police do in their community.
The West Revere School Complex will be holding a free car seat inspection/fitting station. You will be able to drive up to the car seat fitting station and have your child’s car seat properly fitted and inspected. The State 911 Mobile Unit will be stationed at the West Revere Complex for viewing.
“NNO provides the awareness, energy, and determination to make residents want to become involved in making their own neighborhoods a safer place all year round,” said Police Chief Joe Cafarelli. “This one night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes, and works in an effort to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.”
