The Kirkland Police Department encourages Kirkland neighborhoods to participate in the 29th annual National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday August 7, 2012. “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. For National Night Out information, visit www.nationalnightout.org. To register your event with the City of Kirkland, contact Officer Audra Weber, Kirkland Police Department at 425-587-3451 or aweber@Kirklandwa.gov.
