On Tuesday, August 2nd, at Lindley Park from 5 pm to 8:30 pm, neighborhoods and residents throughout Bozeman are invited to attend Bozeman’s National Night Out 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 our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
The Bozeman National Night Out event is presented by the Bozeman Police Department, Bozeman Fire Department, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Montana State University Police Department, Montana Highway Patrol, American Medical Response, Montana Department of Transportation, the United States Forest Service, Child Care Connections, and graduates of the Bozeman Police Department Citizen’s Police Academy.
There will be a bicycle safety rodeo for children; information on personal and home safety, Internet safety, fire safety, and general crime prevention; free gun locks; raffle drawings for a child’s bicycle as well as personal safety classes; fun contests for children with chances to win some great prizes from local businesses; tours of police and sheriff cars, search and rescue vehicles, fire trucks and an ambulance; Respect the Cage rollover simulator; child fingerprinting kits and many other fun activities for all ages. Local banks will be on site to discuss identity theft and fraud prevention. A variety of local food vendors will also be selling their delicious snacks and meals.
The Bozeman Kiwanis Stuff-a-Bus will be on location accepting new and gently used clothing, shoes, boots and winter items so that they can be distributed to families in the greater Gallatin Valley.
This event is open to the entire community and there is no charge to attend. For questions or more information about this event, please call the Bozeman Police Department Crime Prevention Programs office at 582-2234.
