NATIONAL NIGHT OUT AGAINST CRIME KICK-OFF PARTY, OCTOBER 14

Kick-off precedes National Night Out Against Crime, October 16

 KENNER-Everyone is invited to attend the 13th Annual National Night Out Against Crime Kick-Off Party taking place on Sunday, October 14th, from 2-6 p.m. at Laketown in Kenner.  The Kick Off and National Night Out events, which were previously hosted in August, have again been moved to October this year in order to take advantage of the cooler weather. 

 As always, there will be exciting entertainment, including childrenís activities, various displays and demonstrations by law enforcement professionals, live music and great food- ALL FREE! Representatives in every area of law enforcement will be there to talk with you.  This is an excellent opportunity for people considering a career in law enforcement to have their questions answered by experts in each field and to find out what their jobs are all about.  Itís also a great time for citizens and officials to interact and to discuss important issues in our community. 

 The Kick-Off Party is a prelude to the 29th Annual National Night Out Against Crime, which Kenner will observe on the evening of Tuesday, October 16, 2012.  Citizens can help us celebrate the event in variety of ways, such as having a block party, a cook out, or by sitting on their front porch with their lights on- a symbol that has become tradition over the years.  Those organizing parties or gatherings on October 16 are encouraged to call the Kenner Police Department to have officers visit their neighborhoods.  Join your local law enforcement agencies in promoting crime prevention awareness and neighborhood unity in the fight against crime!

 More Information:  Contact the KPD Community Relations Division by phone at (504) 712-2294 or (504) 712-2395 or by email at nguggenheim@kennerpd.com or jvirgil@kennerpd.com to learn more about the kick-off party, to register a party for National Night Out Against Crime or to start a Neighborhood Watch group.
