City of Orlando Hosts National Night Out Kickoff Party Celebrating Safe Communities in District 3
City of Orlando Police Department, District 3 City Commissioner Robert Stuart Partner and Orlando Fashion Square Bring Residents an Entertaining Evening Dedicated to Crime Prevention in Our Community
Orlando City Commissioner Robert Stuart, Orlando Police Chief John Mina, the Orlando Police Department (OPD) and the Orlando Fashion Square invite the entire community to Orlando Fashion Square’s West Concourse for an evening devoted to bringing recognition to National Night Out taking place on August 4, 2015. National Night Out promotes the police-community partnerships that are vital to keeping Orlando a safe city. It is an evening where neighborhoods come together to bring awareness to crime prevention and safety in their areas.
This kickoff event will allow citizens to visit informational tables where they can learn more about public safety and awareness, how to start their own Neighborhood Watch program or host a National Night Out party, all while interacting with first responders from both the Orlando Police and Fire Departments.
Thanks in part to the generosity of Orlando Fashion Square, the event will also include an outside area (adjacent to Colonial Drive- near Bank of America and Panera Bread) where residents can view OPD’s Mounted Patrol and K-9 units as well as a Touch A Truck Zone where kids (and kids at heart) can see many different kinds of trucks up close. Inside the West Court (near Sears), there will be a kids’ zone, with a bounce house, face painting and much more, free food and giveaways. Entertainment will be provided by a DJ and there will be performances and demonstrations by groups from around the
The City of Orlando remains committed to working with residents and businesses to keep Orlando’s neighborhoods and commercial districts a safe place to live, work and play. During the last 10 years, the City has made a significant investment in public safety, adding police officers and firefighters, investing in cutting-edge technology and providing state-of-the-art training. Community policing, along with resident and neighborhood partnerships, remain a vital part of crime prevention in our City. Due to these efforts, overall crime City-wide is down for six of the last seven years, which equates to a 20% decrease since 2007.
