St. Charles Parish residents are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 24 annual National Night Out Against Crime/Drug Prevention event.

On Tuesday, Aug. 7, neighborhoods throughout St. Charles Parish will be participating in the event that is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and Sheriff Greg Champagne and the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anti crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relations; and send a message to criminals, letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

This year’s theme is “Giving Crime & Drugs A Going Away Party.”

From 6 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 7 homeowners, apartment dwellers and businesses are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights for security and spend the evening with their neighbors and police outdoors demonstrating solidarity against crime.

National Night Out is an ideal opportunity for citizens and law enforcement nationwide to form powerful partnerships in the fight for a safer America. On Aug. 7, millions will join forces to Give Crime & Drugs A Going Away Party.

If your neighborhood is planning a Night Out Party, please call Susie Breaux Gauthier at 985-783-1355 to register.
