13th Annual Kick Off
Sunday, October 14, 2012
3:00 PM to 7:00 PM
29th Annual National
Night Out Against Crime
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Everyone is invited to attend the thirteenth Annual National Night Out Against Crime Kick-Off Party taking place on Sunday, October 14, from 3 – 7p.m. at Laketown in Kenner. The Kick Off and National Night out events, which were previously hosted in August, have been moved to October this year in order to take advantage of the cooler weather.
As always, there will be exciting entertainment including children’s activities, various displays and demonstrations by law enforcement professionals, live music and great food – ALL FREE! Representatives in every area of law enforcement will be there to talk with you. This is an excellent opportunity for people considering a career in law enforcement to have their questions answered by experts in each field and to find out what their jobs are all about. It’s also a great time for citizens and officials to interact and to discuss important issues in our community.
The Kick-Off Party is a prelude to the 29th Annual National Night Out Against Crime, which St. James Parish will observe on the evening of Tuesday, October 16, 2011. Citizens can help us celebrate this event in a variety of ways, such as having a block party, a cookout, flashlight walks, or by sitting on their front porch with their lights on – a symbol that has become a tradition over the years. Those organizing parties or gatherings on October 11 are encouraged to call Capt. Craig Poche with the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office to have officers visit their neighborhoods. Please join us in promoting crime prevention awareness and neighborhood unity in the fight against crime!
More Information:Contact Capt. Craig Poche with the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office by phone at (225) 562-2203 or by email to learn more about the kick-off party or to register a party for National Night Out Against Crime.
