Sheriff’ Command Staff Will Visit Neighborhoods Aug. 4 to Observe

St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara and his command staff’ will visit 16 neighborhood anti-crime groups throughout the county the night of Aug. 5, which is National Night Out Against Crime.

“This is our way of joining forces with neighborhoods throughout out county to give crime a going-away party,” Sheriff Mascara said. “This night will demonstrate the partnership between law enforcement and the public in fighting crime.”

This will be the Sheriff’s Office’s 31st observance of National Night Out. “The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office brought this excellent program to St. Lucie County in the mid-1980s,” Sheriff Mascara said.

National Night Out is designed to:

– Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;

– Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;

– Strengthen neighborhood spirit and Sheriff’s Office partnerships with the community; and

– Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

The National Association of Town Watch created the National Night Out Against Crime program in 1980. The organization’s website, where additional information is available, is natw.org.
