Spending one night fighting crime

GREENVILLE — Residents in neighborhoods across Greenville will be spending this evening outside, learning how to fight crime, as the Greenville Police Department participates in the 2013 National Night Out.

Activities are scheduled in at least 11 locations. Marvin and Fran McDaniel again plan to host what has traditionally been among the largest events, starting at 5:30 p.m. at 4507 Hill Street, featuring the Williams Family bluegrass band. Kavanaugh United Methodist Church, 2500 Park, will be serving hot dogs starting at 6 p.m., at about the same time the residents of the Villa Fontana neighborhood will be gathering around the fountain in the center of the community. A complete list of locations and activities is include in today’s edition of the Herald-Banner.

The National Night Out is sponsored each year by the National Association of Town Watch to encourage people in neighborhoods across the country to come together and get to know each other, while meeting with law enforcement authorities and learning ways how to prevent crime, drug abuse and violence in their communities.

Traditionally, the National Night Out is conducted on the first Tuesday night in August, although the national organization has allowed Texas to conduct activities on an officially recognized alternative date on the first Tuesday in October.

The City of Greenville has hosted the National Night Out in October twice before, last year and in 2007.

Greenville has received several awards from the organization in the past, recognizing the city’s event as among the best in the nation for cities with populations between 15,000 and 49,999 residents.

Anyone wanting more information about the National Night Out or wishes to host a neighborhood event may contact Officer Chris McCaslin at 903-457-2998 or cmccaslin@ci.greenville.tx.us.
