  Residents will participate in National Night Out with a Healthy Walk

The Azusa Police Department and the City of Azusa will observe National Night Out by asking its residents to join them in a one-mile stroll around the civic center on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 6:30 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. After the stroll participants can mingle at the Target Store and pick-up free promotional items to be given away by the event sponsors.

The event is set to begin at the Target Store located at 809 N. Azusa Avenue. Target is the national sponsor of the free event which is designed to promote crime prevention awareness throughout the nation.

“The Azusa Police Department and the City of Azusa would like to thank Target for their sponsorship of this program,” said Azusa Police Chief, Sam Gonzalez. “It allows the public to interact with their civic leaders and Azusa’s police, fire and safety personnel to obtain information about their respective prevention and safety programs.”

National Night Out is a campaign by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) which works in cooperation with thousands of crime watch groups and law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

“The National Night Out campaign has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and fun program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our crime fighting campaign for a safer Azusa,” adds Chief Gonzales.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized

Participants will rally at the Target Store at 6:30 P.M. to begin the one-mile walk around the Azusa civic center. At the end of the walk all participants will be treated to a healthy fresh fruit snack and a drink. Sponsors of the event and the Target Store will award all walk participants with free gifts and a raffle at the conclusion of the event.

Sponsors of the event include: Azusa Police Department, Azusa Light & Water Department, Los Angeles County Area “D” Disaster Coordinator, Brenda Hunemiller; Target Stores, Azusa Beautiful, Azusa Health Center, Azusa’s LA County Fire Station 32 and 97 and the Explorers Program, Metro Gold Line, National Guard Armory, Curves, 24 Hour Fitness, YWCA Healthy Communities, and the Azusa Chamber of Commerce.
