Public safety visitors will share tips on home to keep homes and neighborhood safe, and how to report anything out of the ordinary. City administration leaders will also be taking part.
This is the 40th anniversary for the National Night Out program, an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Storm Lake Police have been organizing the local events since 1990.
The relationships built through National Night Out make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live, and enhance a sense of community. The events are an opportunity to bring public safety people and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
The National Night Out movement has grown over the years to include 77,000 communities in all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.
Block parties can range from the simplest gathering to cookouts or children’s activities.
Anyone who is interested in hosting a block party next year may contact Lt. Alyssa Solem at the Storm Lake Police Department.
