"National Night Out
Against Crime" in the USA will be held on Tuesday, August 7,
In 2017, we had a combined NNO
with Crystal Ridge HOA and Puyallup Highlands HOA in our
neighborhood and had a brief visit by the PPD and fire
In years past, the
Puyallup Police Department has had a very vibrant night
visiting our Block Watch neighborhoods throughout the City.
Last year they visited a new record of 23 organized Block
Watch parties spread across the City.
To be able to make it to all the
parties, they had to split into three different teams to
canvass Puyallup. The time they spent in travel from
location to location made for a very tight schedule. They
only got to spend on average of 10 minutes at each Block
We have an amazing, engaged
community. As a result, our Block Watch numbers are
increasing and we expected to have more Block Watch parties
to visit for this year’s event. Our officers enjoy the
opportunity to connect with those they serve. There was
concern that the growing number meant even less time they
spent at each party. They have decided to make a pretty big
change this year.
So in 2018 the Puyallup Police
Department is going to host a National Night Out Against
Crime One Puyallup party in Pioneer Park. This will be our
National Night Out event for the entire City. They will no
longer be visiting individual Block Watch parties, but
instead encouraging our Block Watch parties to gather with
them and other members of the community in Pioneer Park.
The event will be held from 6 to
8 pm. There will be family friendly music, bounce houses for
kids, police demos, a food truck and community booths. The
change will allow the PD staff to spend quality time with
the community in a very fun environment.
We are very excited for National
Night Out this year. I hope you will be able to join us at
the event as we celebrate all the great and positive things
we as a community and others are doing together to fight
crime in Puyallup.
