The Murfreesboro Police Department is partnering with the Murfreesboro Housing Authority, Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation, Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors, AARP, and others to host National Night Out Against Crime Tuesday, August 1, 2017.
National Night Out is an opportunity for residents to meet their neighbors, law enforcement officers, public officials, and other community service providers in an informal setting with the goal of increasing communication about crime prevention.
The partnering agencies will be hosting Night Out activities from 5:00p.m. until 8:00p.m at SportsCom, Patterson Park and the downtown public square. Spring Valley Apartment residents are also celebrating the occasion. Free food, information and activities for children and families will be provided at each location. There will be a "shred truck" at the downtown location for free on-site shredding of up to 3 boxes of personal papers during this event.
"National Night Out Against Crime is a national crime prevention event designed to heighten crime prevention awareness and build relationships between Murfreesboro residents and police officers," said Chief Karl Durr. "It is a great chance to spend time with your neighbors and the police officers who patrol your neighborhood."
This is the 20th year the City has participated in the program.
