    Leesburg Police to celebrate National Night Out Aug. 5

    The Leesburg Police Department on Aug. 5 will participate in the 31st annual National Night Out.

    The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Exeter Clubhouse, 390 Plaza Street NE.

    The event is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by Leesburg Police Department and Target. Gifts donated by Target and Kohl’s will be distributed at the site to children 15 years of age and younger, with parental consent. To be eligible for the gift drawing, children must complete a simple form that asks what phone numbers are used to contact the police. They also have to get two officer’s signatures before they can turn in the ticket for a raffle ticket. Winners will receive gift cards and coupons that were donated by Chick-fil-A, Cobb Theatre, Giant, Target and Wal-Mart. Wegmans will be catering the event. The Leesburg Police Department will provide give-a-ways and crime prevention tips as well.

    Events for children will include the ROCK program moon bounce, Leesburg Parks and Recreation will have a tennis court game and McGruff the Crime Dog will be handing out Junior Officer Badges. The LPD Barrel Train will be at the event to provide rides for the kids and Good Knight Child Empowerment Network program will be handing out materials on child safety.

    National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
    This is a day where all residents in neighborhoods throughout Leesburg and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.

    The Sycamore Hills community will be an ancillary site and if any other communities are planning on hosting a community celebration.

    For more information contact Master Police Officer H.M. Maupin, Leesburg Police Department, at 703-771-4500 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

    A great program by the Town of Leesburg, and the Leesburg Police Department.  It is great that a majority of the Leesburg Town Council understands the importance of this program, and annually votes to fund it.  Unfortunately, Tom Dunn voted to cut all funding for this program.  I do not understand why Tom Dunn would do such a thing.  But at least he was only one vote.
