JUNEAU - On Aug. 5, the Juneau Police Department will sponsor the first National Night Out in Juneau, program bringing neighbors together for an evening of fun and social interaction with an emphasis on crime prevention and personal security.
Talk to your neighbors and plan a get-together of some kind for Aug. 5. Neighborhood barbecues, festivals, parades and the like may happen throughout the city. Juneau Police Department members will join McGruff the Crime Dog at as many of these neighborhood events as possible.
To participate, contact the Juneau Police Department to register your event and request a block party permit so you can close the street in your neighborhood for the evening.
