National Night Out Aug. 5 in Batesville

(Continued)

National Association of Town Watch (www.natw.org) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of various crime prevention programs, including National Night Out, which was introduced by executive director Matt Peskin in 1984.

The activity now involves over 37 million and 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. It traditionally takes place on the first Tuesday in August. CDFB members decided to set the local grill-out one day earlier as public schools open Aug. 7.

Peskin said on the Web site, “This is a night for America to stand together and promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight for a safer nation. On NNO, we invite neighborhoods nationwide to join us and ‘give crime a going-away party.’”
