On Tuesday, August 1, 2017, Marshall County Crime Stoppers and the Marshalltown Y will be hosting the first annual National Night Out event from 5:30-7:00 p.m.  This event will be held in the Marshalltown Y parking lot located at 108 Washington Street in Marshalltown.  The area bike trail will also be in use for an informal community walk.  Area law enforcement will be on hand to interact with community members and answer questions regarding local efforts to combat crime.  Community partners and law enforcement will be grilling hot dogs.  There will be free t-shirts available for the first 100 attendees.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.

Marshall County Crime Stoppers is proud to support the first National Night Out event in Marshalltown.  Crime Stoppers is excited to work with community members, business partners and area law enforcement with the goals of enhancing community safety and promoting Marshall County communities as a safe place to live, work and raise a family.  Please join us on August 1!
