The Blotter
With Corporal Melinda Wray, NPD

Growing up as a child, I recall keeping our doors unlocked, the windows open, and playing carelessly in the neighborhood until the street lamps illuminated the pavement.

For many of us, these memories often begin with “once upon a time.” Thankfully, at least once a year, we can come together and celebrate the bond between our communities and build our neighborhood unity to make our streets a safer, better place to live.

Since 1984, on the first Tuesday in August, people from across the country have joined together and promoted community spirit while enhancing the relationship between their neighbors and local law enforcement. Streets are closed for block parties that include live music, food, and entertainment. Instead of a hurried wave from busy parents, neighbors get a chance to connect with one another and introduce themselves to new members of the community. Forging these deeper connections is the foundation of National Night Out: reducing crime through partnering with our community members.

National Night Out has been an active force in the City of Norfolk for over two decades. This year’s event is sponsored by the Crossroads Community Civic League and will be held on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at Northside Park. Activities include face painting, bounce houses, child identification cards, bike safety courses, NPD K-9 and Dive Team demonstrations, a “monster” fire truck appearance, various vendor displays, and much more! Hamburgers and hotdogs will be hot off the grill, so be sure to bring your appetite. I invite you to enjoy free entertainment, food and fun with the Norfolk Police Department during this year’s National Night Out!

Does your civic league or community have what it takes to sponsor next year’s National Night Out event? Bring the campaign to your neighborhood by contacting the Norfolk Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit at 757-664-6901.
