On Tuesday, August 6, neighborhoods throughout Hoquiam will join thousands of communities nationwide for the “30th Annual National Night Out” against crime. Last year, 37.5 million people participated in National Night Out in over 15,000 communities, including Hoquiam.
National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Hoquiam Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies.
National Night Out is an opportunity for community members to get to know one another and build communication about what’s happening in their neighborhood. Public Officials, Officers, Firefighters and Crime Watch volunteers from Hoquiam as well as an E911 Dispatcher will drop in at each announced block party to visit and talk about important crime prevention and general safety tips.
If you want to close a street in your neighborhood or organize an event inside a city park during National Night Out, contact Tracy Wood at the City of Hoquiam at 538-3970 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Signs and barricades are available from the city if needed.
The police department will be providing free party items to each block party host. To sign up or to obtain more information regarding this event, call Chief Jeff Myers at 360-532-0892 x 105 or email@example.com or Tracy Wood.
