National Night Out

Crime is a big concern for many communities across eastern Carolina and Tuesday night communities and law enforcement came together for a show of solidarity.

Getting the community involved is the goal of National Night Out--an event to raise awareness for crime prevention.

That awareness was served up with hot dogs and other fun activities for residents of Greenville by its own police department. In its fourth year for the event, the police department made sure it was the largest. Over 65 vendors set up their tents with information about a variety of community programs for both kids and adults.

Tuesday night marked the 26th year for National Night Out.

    Obviously didn't deter your negative attitudes either tad, voter, or morris norris. You're missing the point! It was to grow a stronger sense of community. You are right, events like this doesn't deter crime...but knowing your neighbors helps decrease the feelings of isolation created in our town; isolation of communities and seperation of the law enforcement force from the rest of the community! Events like these also serve as a way to create interactions between communities that otherwise would not interact. Time to start looking at communities as 'we' and not 'me'.

    I bet there wasn't anybody eating hot dogs on the streets of Robersonville and Oak City tonight. Even a hot dog with chili and a bag of chips ain't worth gettin' shot.
