The community is invited to meet the local police officers and neighbors at the annual National Night Out Against Crime on August 7 from 6-8:30 p.m. at Kenmore City Hall. The Kenmore Police Department invites community members to join them for a free barbecue with hot dogs and hamburgers, learn tips on home and personal safety, and enjoy other activities.

National Night Out is a combined effort by neighborhoods across the country to prevent crime and drugs in communities and is always the first Tuesday in August.

The Kenmore Police Department encourages the community to get to know one another to build a safer community.Introduce yourself and if comfortable, exchange phone numbers. Let neighbors know when you will be out of town and what type of things you can help each other with.

Talk about how you can look out for each other and report suspicious behavior to police.

Remind each other to always close garage doors and lock apartment doors. Remove everything from your car, then lock it up! Remind everyone in your building to lock up bikes with a strong U-lock. Cable locks can be easily cut.

Encourage everyone on your street to have a secure locking mailbox and share information on vendors or contractors to install one.
