National Night Out

8.5.14:  Turn your porch light on tonight


Tonight is the National Night Out.


It is the annual event that promotes crime-prevention activities and works to build a better relationship between communities and law enforcement.  Various sheriff departments and communities have special activities planned.


In Kent County, this is the 4th year that the sheriff’s department has collaborated with local businesses to host the South Kent Night Out Against Crime.  Residents are invited to Peppino’s Pizza on Eastport Drive in Gaines Township from 4-8 p.m. for a number of free activities.


Most Grand Rapids Neighborhood Associations have free activities and giveaways planned for today.


We are asked to turn on our porch lights tonight between 7 and 10 p.m.
