Anti-crime observance

tonight in Grass Valley

Tonight, neighborhoods throughout the city of Grass Valley are being invited to join thousands of communities nationwide for the 25th Annual National Night Out. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for, and participation in, anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and send a message to criminals that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting. Between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. residents in neighborhoods throughout Grass Valley and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors. Grass Valley police Chief John Foster invites all neighborhoods to join in because police expect the benefits to extend beyond tonight. For more information about National Night Out, or to have a police officer visit your neighborhood tonight, call Sgt. Doug Hren at 477-4600.
