On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, from 6 – 9 p.m. the Buchanan Police Department sponsored its annual National Night Out(NNO) Against Crime 2022 at McCoy Creek Park behind Buchanan High School. This event was open to all citizens in and around the Buchanan community.
NNO is designed to: (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) generate support for, and participation in, local anti crime efforts; (3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Many neighborhoods throughout America accomplish this through such activities as block parties, parades, visits from police, flashlight walks, contests, youth activities, and anti crime rallies.
All communities were cordially invited to attend and have fun with us.
Please feel free to contact myself, or Diana Selir at (269) 695-5120 if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to your generous support on making our NNO a continued local success.
