The City of Elgin Police Department and the National Association of Town Watch will be sponsoring the 28th Annual National Night Out crime prevention celebration on Tuesday, August 2, 2011. National Night Out is a great opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another and bring more people into the process of preventing crime.
Neighborhood Watch groups, homeowner’s associations, and any interested residents are encouraged to participate in this year’s National Night Out by sponsoring a block party on Tuesday, August 2, 2011 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Last year over 40 neighborhoods joined in the effort to make it a successful event. To register your neighborhood for National Night Out 2011 please contact Cherie Aschenbrenner at the Elgin Police Department at (847) 289-2626 or go to the City’s website to download the registration at www.cityofelgin.org and click on police, Community Relations/Crime Prevention. Those who register will have their party visited by City of Elgin dignitaries, police and fire. All registrations must be submitted no later than Friday, June 24, 2011 in order to be recognized by the City of Elgin.
