Placer County Honored for National Night Out
For the fifth year in a row, the Placer County Sheriff's Office has been honored for hosting one of the best National Night Out events in the U.S. in 2013, placing twelfth, just behind much larger jurisdictions like Los Angeles County and Minneapolis, Minn.
National Night Out is celebrated annually on the first Tuesday of August, when first-responders caravan in emergency vehicles to dozens of Placer County neighborhoods. They visit established Neighborhood Watch groups, which hold ice cream socials, barbecues and all sorts of get-togethers. In 2013, more than 37.8 million people in 16,124 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, and military bases worldwide participated in National Night Out.
A National Night Out project coordinator said that the Placer County Sheriff's Office has kept its community groups "motivated, enthusiastic, and excelled at having fun."
"Placer County groups embody the spirit of Neighborhood Watch," said Sheriff Ed Bonner. "Through their efforts and dedication, residents remain committed to the safety of their neighborhoods."
Neighborhoods interested in creating a Neighborhood Watch group are encouraged to call the Sheriff's Office at (530) 889-7800.
