This year's National Night Out is Tuesday, August 4, 2015. This national program encourages citizens to have a block party, meet neighbors and help fight crime in their area. Similar to a neighborhood watch program, a block captain organizes his/her neighborhood and has an ice cream social, BBQ, corn roast or any type of event they want to plan for that evening. Events usually run between the hours of 4:30pm to 8:30pm in the evening. Representatives from the Town of Windsor, The Windsor Police Department and Windsor - Severance Fire District will visit each location and meet the residents of the neighborhood to discuss concerns, answer questions and get acquainted in a non-formal setting. Cul de sacs may be blocked off for this event but not through streets. This is a great way to get to know your neighbors and become familiar with your neighborhood.
If you are interested in serving as a Block Captain for National Night Out, call the Windsor Police Department at (970) 674-6400 to register.
