U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon to Take Part in National Night Out
BISMARCK – U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon will join law enforcement and community leaders on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, at Elmwood Park in West Fargo, N.D., from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. as part of the 30th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event.
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.
U.S. Attorney Purdon said, “National Night Out is a perfect opportunity for neighbors to join with their law enforcement and community partners to demonstrate that crime does not rule the night and that criminals have no safe haven when the sun goes down. I look forward to joining my colleagues on Tuesday to help continue to spread the important message that we are all in this together.”
National Night Out organizers are expecting over 16,000 communities and 38 million people nationwide to take part in community events on Tuesday.
