Night Out is a great opportunity to celebrate your efforts to keep your neighborhood safe. Pat each other on the back for your continued involvement and dedication to public safety. It is also a great time to invite new neighbors to join you and talk with friends and family who may not enjoy the benefits of a Block Watch about getting one started.
