Take a Stand Against Crime at National Night Out in Santa Maria

The community is invited to National Night Out, presented by the City of Santa Maria Police Department, Recreation and Parks Department and PLAY, Inc. (People for Leisure And Youth, Inc.).

Bring the whole family on Tuesday, Aug. 4, to the parking lot of Town Center East on the corner of Miller and Main Street (Highway 135) from 4 to 8 p.m. for a celebration of police-community collaborations, crime prevention and neighborhood camaraderie. 
 
Several organizations including the Recreation and Parks Department, local law enforcement, fire, military and medical response personnel will be on hand providing demonstrations and activities.

There will also be free food, youth activities, vendors and more. The entire event is free and all ages are welcome. Come out and show your support in the fight against crime.
 
National Night Out started in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, while building partnerships with law enforcement and local communities.

The event is now celebrated by more than 37 million people in over 16,000 communities throughout all 50 states.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
