The Town of Windsor will participate in the 2017 National Night Out event on Tuesday, Aug. 1.
National Night Out is a community-building program that encourages citizens nationwide to hold a neighborhood gathering, meet their neighbors, and partner with police to help make communities safer.
Similar to a neighborhood watch program, a Block Captain organizes his/her neighborhood and holds an event — an ice cream social, BBQ, corn roast, etc. Events are usually held between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m.
Representatives from the Town of Windsor, the Windsor Police Department and Windsor-Severance Fire Rescue will visit each location and meet the residents of the neighborhood to discuss concerns, answer questions and get acquainted in a casual setting.
Cul de sacs may be blocked off for this event, but not through streets.
