This year, residents of Bartlett will again have two opportunities to “Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party”!
The City of Bartlett will recognize National Night Out on the first Tuesday in August with porch light vigils or neighbor meet-and-greets throughout the community. Crime prevention and neighborhood watch are year-long activities. We celebrate that one night to recognize this and to re-energize our neighborhoods.
On the first Tuesday in October the City of Bartlett will host Bartlett Night Out. Since October is Crime Prevention Month, we are asking neighborhoods to organize events such as block parties, carnivals, flashlight walks, youth programs, and visits from local police and fire departments. Bartlett Night Out is an opportunity for our citizens to send a message about neighborhood unity, awareness, safety, and police-community partnerships.
Don’t forget – we’ll observe National Night Out on the first Tuesday in August, and we’ll hold our Bartlett Night Out celebrations on the first Tuesday in October. Mark your calendars and start making plans now, so we can have the best year ever!
