The event this year will consist of asking our neighbors to create a National Night Out atmosphere right in their own front yard or porch. Turn on a porch light (preferably blue); make a yard sign with an anti-crime slogan, referencing National Night Out, to show solidarity against crime; or get creative and come up with your own idea. The goal is to promote strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. August 1st-3rd, submit a photo of your display through Facebook Messenger to the City of Sterling’s or Brinkley Sterling’s Facebook pages; make sure to include your address in the message. The PD will post your photos on their Facebook pages. During the night of August 3·, Brinkley and her Community Service Officer will be making visits to the participants.
