We are coming to the end of term and the end of summer! Keep an eye out for community events and cultural offerings in August and throughout the fall, including the National Night Out event on August 2 to promote police and community partnerships.
Join Public Safety for National Night on August 2
Research has shown that partnerships between communities and local police forces have a positive effect not only on crime rates, but also on communities’ trust in law enforcement. Celebrated on the first Tuesday of August, national evening is an annual celebration aimed at making communities safer and more caring through programs that foster police-community partnerships. Join Public Safety for community-building activities August 2 from 5-7 p.m. at the southeast corner of 33rd and Arch Streets, next to the entrance to Buckley Field.
