The Rock Valley College Police Department and Rockford Police Department are teaming up to host a National Night Out event at Rock Valley College on Tuesday, August 5, 2014, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. The event will primarily take place in Parking Lot 2 on RVC's main campus (3301 North Mulford Road) with some additional attractions located in the Physical Education Center (PEC).
National Night Out is an excellent opportunity to promote public and police partnerships, crime prevention, and community camaraderie. Some of the highlights at this year's event will include:
The event is free and open to anyone in the community.
The introduction of National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime", in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
