The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime”, in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. NATW’s National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August.
Grand Lake Township National Night Out:
The first Grand Lake Township sponsored NNA was held in 2013 and was a huge success. Neighbors were reunited after years of not seeing each other; there was food and Deputies from the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office including a K-9 that was a big hit with the kids! Each year we continue to have good attendance.
