For Immediate Release:
On Tuesday, August 4, 2009, neighborhoods throughout Sutter County and the City of
Live Oak are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for
the “26th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime and drug prevention event.
National Night Out is “America’s Night Out Against Crime” and has grown from 2.5
million participants in its first year to over 34 million last year. Over 10,000
communities participated last year alone in an effort to heighten crime and drug
awareness and strengthen neighborhood spirit and law enforcement community
partnerships. National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town
Watch (NATW) and is co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice
Assistance and the Sutter County Sheriff’s Department.
National Night Out provides an opportunity to meet neighbors, strengthen the
community, and fight crime. From 7 PM to 10 PM on August 4th, residents in
neighborhoods throughout Sutter County and Live Oak and across the nation are asked to
lock their doors, turn on outside lights, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and
police. Many neighborhoods throughout Live Oak and Sutter County will be hosting a
variety of special events such as, block parties, cookouts, youth activities, and visits from
Sheriff J. Paul Parker and his command staff, along with the Sutter County K-9 unit, Boat
Patrol, Special Enforcement Detail (SWAT), Divers and Live Oak Fire Department will
be visiting the neighborhoods during this event.
If you would like to host an event in your neighborhood, don’t delay. Organizing early
ensures a successful event. Please join us in celebrating the 26th Anniversary of National
Night Out. If you would like to sign up your neighborhood, please visit
