Raytown Gearing Up for National Night Out
Raytown, MO – Raytown Celebrates National Night Out at Kenagy Park
79th Street & Raytown Road
5:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2012
Raytown Police Chief Jim Lynch is hoping to send a message to criminals: neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. The city-wide National Night Out Against Crime event is co-sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATWE) and the Raytown Police Department. “It is an occasion to celebrate past successes, discuss current challenges or issues, and re-dedicate to collaborative efforts with neighbors, police, businesses and others to improve the quality of life in our city,” said Chief Lynch.
This free event is designed to generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts as well as strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnership.
Enjoy free goodies, raffles for great prizes and free hotdogs while they last!
There will be more than 15 agencies available to show what they can do for our residents and city. See displays by outside agencies as well as view equipment and vehicles used by police, EMS, Raytown Fire, and Raytown Public Works. See the Lee’s Summit Police Bomb Squad blow up watermelons plus many other surprises.
National Night Out celebrates the culmination of crime prevention activity in all Raytown neighborhoods. Come join the celebration on August 6th.
