The Kirkland Police Department looks forward to Kirkland neighborhoods participating in the 31st annual National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, August 5, 2014. “National Night Out” is a nationwide campaign aimed at involving communities in crime and drug prevention awareness. Activities that neighborhoods may want to host include cookouts, flashlight walks, or contests. The Kirkland Police and Fire Departments will be attending community events between 6 and 9 p.m. To show support of National Night Out, Kirkland residents are encouraged to get with neighbors and friends, turn your porch lights on, and come outside to take a stand against crime.
