10/01/18

Participants will have a chance to win a free Ring doorbell

 

TAMPA, FL (October 1, 2018)—The Tampa Police Department is hosting several parties for prevention—crime prevention that is, and it’s all part of National Crime Prevention month in October.  The police department will roll out its new ‘Neighborhood Night Out’ event series at six parks across the city.  The goal is to promote safer neighborhoods through increased resident participation and stronger police-community relationships.

 

The first ‘Neighborhood Night Out’ is set to take place at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park on October 2 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Additional events are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the following locations:

 

October 17—Cyrus Greene Community Center

 

October 18—Oak Park Community Center

 

October 23—Benito Playground Activity Center

 

October 24—Copeland Park Community Center

 

October 25—Henry and Ola Park

 

‘Neighborhood Night Out’ festivities will include free food, giveaways and entertainment along with a variety of activities and police resource demonstrations.  The Tampa Bay Rays mascots and Tampa Bay Rowdies Street Team are scheduled to make special appearances at specific event sites.

 

Adults who attend ‘Neighborhood Night Out’ will also have an opportunity to win a free Ring doorbell with proof of city of Tampa residency.

 

All ‘Neighborhood Night Out’ events are open to the public.
