National Night Out, Tuesday August 6th

On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, neighborhood residents throughout SeaTac will take a stand and give neighborhood crime and drugs a going away party!

Each year on the first Tuesday in August, residents in neighborhoods throughout SeaTac and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.  Some neighborhoods host special events such as block parties, cookouts, visits from police, and anti-crime rallies. This is all in the spirit of getting to know neighbors and local police, in order to prevent crime in the community.

National Night Out is designed to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
National Night Out also showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight to build a safer community.

The Angle Lake Shore Club encourages all neighbors within our community to consider participating in some way in this activity. For more information about this annual event, please visit the National Night Out Website or contact Community Crime Prevention Officer Rich Rowe at 206.973.4904.
