Last night marked “National Night Out…” an annual event to promote safe neighborhoods. Across the country, folks left the lights on”… or took to the streets—in a symbolic stand against crime. Crime Specialist—with the Collier County Sheriff’s Office—Brian Clervoix says a march against crime in Immokalee demonstrated a united front.
“We’re just going to let the criminals know that—not only law enforcement—but people in the community are aware of what’s going on. And we’re pretty much going to try and get together and bring crime to a halt—especially in the Immokalee area.”
National Night Out began 21 years ago—the brainchild of “The National Association of Town Watch.” That’s a Pennsylvania-based coalition of neighborhood watch groups and law enforcement.
