National Night Out set for Aug. 7

HARRIS COUNTY— Harris County Sheriff Tommy Thomas would like to extend a personal invitation to all of his Harris County neighbors to participate in the 2007, National Night Out. Sheriff Thomas has always actively supported and participated in National Night Out.
Sheriff Thomas has said “One of the best deterrents to crime is a close-knit community where the neighbors know each other and interact. National Night Out helps to strengthen communities by bringing neighbors together and by promoting cooperation between law enforcement officers and the communities they serve.”
This year’s event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 7, but now is the time to make plans and request information packets from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Community Services Division.
Whether your neighborhood plans a community party, a block party or an informal get together the Sheriff’s Office would like to participate. The packets include a history of the National Night Out Program and a participation pledge form.
Once the form is returned you will receive additional information that includes a request for a Sheriff’s Office representative to attend your function. Don’t delay in sending your request for a packet, National Night Out is just around the corner!
For information please contact the Community Services Division of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office at 713-759-9454.
