National Night Out parties held Aug. 2
National Night Out [NNO] is a partnership between residents and their police department. Every year, residents hold parties in their neighborhoods. It’s an opportunity for the public and local law enforcement to meet and forge relationships. The hope is that those relationships will lead to residents becoming more vigilant about what is going on in their neighborhoods and that they will call the police when they see suspicious activity going on. This year’s NNO in Wilton Manors will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. The confirmed NNO parties are located at 664 NW 30 Ct., 509 NW 28 St., 300 NW 21 Ct., 732 NW 29 St., 2000 NE 2 Ave., 3002 NE 5 Terr. #207, 1017 NE 28 Dr., 2749 NE 14 Ave., 1512 NE 28 Dr. and 2040 N. Dixie Hwy. Attendees are asked to bring a covered dish. Visit WiltonManors.com/index.aspx?NID=305 for more information.
