The Oxnard Police Department is proud to announce two more National Night Out events in Oxnard, tomorrow

National Night Out is designed to: (1) heighten crime prevention awareness, (2) generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs, (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and (4) send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized, vigilant, and fighting back.
“In the spirit of our neighborhood policing strategy we are proud to partner with the Oxnard Housing Authority, Senior Housing, and Voces de la Comunidad—a community organization aimed at promoting peace throughout Oxnard—for a smaller, more intimate event with residents and friends,” said Senior Officer Jeff McGreevy.
“We very much appreciate the support from our colleagues across the City as well as our local community organizations that are invested in building a stronger and safer community for everyone who lives, works, and visits our great City.” said Chief Jeri Williams.
Along with traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most cities and towns celebrate National Night Out with a variety of special citywide and neighborhood events.  This event at 801 S. C Street in downtown will also include a papering for residents and guest including hair, make-up, and photo for seniors at the event, courtesy of the Huenemean Bohemian Foundation.
The third event will take place at Sycamore Senior Village at 333 N. F STOxnard CA 93030, also in Oxnard from 6:00-8:00pm.
“This is a good night to get to know your neighbors, and help build a stronger and safer community while promoting awareness, safety and neighborhood unity.  It further highlights the importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight for a safer Oxnard and community. We hope this year’s events serve as model for what more neighborhoods in our community can organize next year” said Police Chief Williams. 
NNO is a national effort of cities, law enforcement agencies, crime prevention organizations, community groups and neighborhoods.
National corporate sponsors for National Night Out 2013 are Target, Associa, and   Last year, NNO 2012 involved 37.5 million people in over 15,000 communities from all 50 states.
