August 4th, National Night Out!

The Forest Hills Neighborhood Association will host a National Night Out event on August 4th from 6:00-8:00 at the playground/shelter in Forest Hills Park. National Night Out is an event sponsored by the Durham Police Department to:
  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Forest Hills Neighborhood Association members will be on hand to distribute public safety materials as well as ice cream sundaes.  In addition, officers from the Durham Police Department will stop by to introduce themselves and answer any questions residents might have.  Besides ice cream and crime prevention, it’s also a great excuse to get out and know your neighbors better. We hope to see you there!
