The Waverly Police Department is planning a National Night Out for the City of Waverly at
Kohlmann Park on Tuesday August 2, 2011. National Night Out, Americas’ Night Out Against
Crime, is an effort to heighten awareness and strengthen participation in local anticrime efforts. Last
year’s National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups,
businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all
50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37 million
people participated in the National Night Out 2010.
National Night Out is designed to:
Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and
Tentative activities for August 2, 2011 include:
