72nd Precinct National Night Out Against Crime
Tuesday, August 4th, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The 72nd Precinct's observance of the 32nd National Night Out Against Crime will be held in Sunset Park, at 44th Street and 6th Avenue, by the park entrance at the soccer field.
Introduced in 1984 by The National Association of Town Watch, National Night Out's goals are to
- heighten crime and drug prevention awareness,
- generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts,
- strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and
- send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
For more information, call Community Affairs at the 72nd Precinct at (718) 965-6326.
National Night Out Against Crime is held annually on the first Tuesday in August.
