Unite for National Night Out August 1

Communities throughout Folsom will partner with the Folsom Police Department Tuesday, August 1 for the Annual National Night Out, a nationwide program that promotes involvement in crime prevention, police-community partnerships, and neighborhood camaraderie. The Folsom Police Department, Folsom Fire Department and City officials will join hundreds of residents at neighborhood park and block parties that have been organized by local Neighborhood Watch groups. Attendees can expect to learn useful crime prevention information, and have the opportunity to meet police officers and firefighters, and possibly even the Folsom Police Department K-9 or mounted units. For more information on National Night Out or how to start a Neighborhood Watch group, contact Jessica Hess, Folsom Police Department volunteer coordinator, at 916-351-3409 or jhess@folsom.ca.us.
