Westminster areas to mark anti-crime event tomorrow

August 05, 2002

Neighborhoods throughout Westminster will throw block parties from 6 to 9 tomorrow as part of the 19th annual National Night Out, an event that promotes drug and crime prevention.

Residents will be outside to get to know their neighbors and local and state police officers. The night is designed to generate support for local anticrime efforts, including creating neighborhood watch groups.

City groups involved include the George Street Community Association, Carroll Lutheran Village, Pennsylvania Avenue and the Greens.

Surrounding neighborhoods are encouraged to join games and presentations from local and state police.

Westminster Police Department and state police will be on hand to answer questions.
