City taking part in National Night Out

July 29, 2012

WOONSOCKET – National Night Out will take place at River Island Park on Tuesday, Aug. 7 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The event, which takes place in cities and towns all over the country, is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW). It is co-sponsored by the Woonsocket Police Department and Woonsocket Safe Communities.
National Night Out was conceived as vehicle for law-abiding citizens to tell criminals to get out of town.
“National Night Out is designed 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.” Detective Jamie Paone said.
The event will feature a number of vendors who will be distributing literature on crime prevention programs and services to residents in the community.
Geared for family participation, the event will also include a rock climbing wall, free food and drinks, and a raffle for a girl’s and boy’s bike.
There will also be a free bike helmet giveaway, children’s events, face painting, balloon characters, a giant bouncy ride, and music by a DJ. The city police and the Woonsocket Fire Department will also display public safety equipment and vehicles.
Anyone with questions may contact Officer Joshua Smith at 767-8178 or Lt. Brad Scully at 767-8831.
