Monroe announces NNO schedule

Live or work near the City of Monroe?  Plan now to join the community in a crime prevention extravaganza for National Night Out on August 3 at Lake Tye Park.

This event is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Monroe Rotary and the Monroe Police Department.

National Night Out is designed to:
• Heighten awareness of crime prevention and anti-drug use, efforts;
• Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts;
• Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
• Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime.

The Monroe Rotary and the Monroe Police Department will be partnering with community businesses, service groups, faith groups, service providers, Monroe Fire District #3, and citizens to present a local National Night Out celebration.  Food will be available while supplies last.
