This year's National Night Out is August 2, 2011. This is a national program that encourages people to have a block party, meet their neighbors and help fight crime in their area. Simialr to a neighborhood watch program, a block captain organizes his/her neighborhood and has a ice cream social, bbq, corn roast or an event they want to plan for that evening. Events usually run for several hours sometime between about 4:30pm to 8:30pm in the evening. Representatives from the Town of Windsor, The Windsor Police Department and Windsor - Severence Fire District will visit each location and meet the residents of the neighborhood to discuss concerns, answer questions and get acquainted in a non-formal setting. Cul de sacs may be blocked off for this event but not through streets.
If you are interested in serving as a Block Captain for National Night Out, call the Windsor Police Department at (970) 674-6400 and register.
