The Anti-crime, Child Safety Community Roundup comes to Bakersfield

May 12, 2012 by  

On Friday, August 3rd, the 27th Annual National Night out against Crime will take place at Central Park located between 21st Street and R Street in Bakersfield, California. This event will take place between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm.

This is an adaptation of the nation’s biggest annual event for crime prevention. It has been designed to raise awareness of drug and crime prevention and to invite people to get involved with the local anti-crime campaign. Through this event, a police partnership and neighborhood taskforce will work together to strengthen neighborhoods in the community. Guests attending this event will enjoy a full, fun-filled evening of live music, live entertainment, fun activities, balloons, and an assortment of snacks and beverages. There will be static displays from many policing departments including the K-9 unit, the Bakersfield Police Department, and the SWAT Team, as well as many other service and crime agencies in the community. This is a family event and many of the activities will be aimed at children. August is “Purple Ribbon” month in this area, so guests will be encouraged to learn more about the purple ribbon campaign that promotes child safety.

Since this event is about awareness, promoting it is essential to children’s well-being. Therefore, flyer printing and banner printing probably has been used to spread the word about the evening. Admission is free and it is a “rain or shine” event, so guests are asked to dress appropriately and remember sunscreen for their children. For additional information about this event, please visit the Community Roundup website, or call the Bakersfield Police Department.
