What is National Night Out?

It's America's Night Out Against Crime!

The "28th Annual National Night Out" (NNO), a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 4, 2011. We cordially invite you and your community to be a part of our NIGHT OUT 2011 team.

Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2010.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;

  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;

  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and

  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

NATW and National Night Out.

Along with the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils, cities, towns and neighborhoods 'celebrate' NNO with a variety of events and activities. In Robinson we will celebrate NNO in the new City Park. What will we be doing:

  • food

  • exhibits,

  • flashlight walks,

  • ganes

  • contests, and

  • youth programs.

NNO has proven to be an effective, inexpensive and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer nation. Plus, the benefits your community will derive from NNO will most certainly extend well beyond the one night.

National Night Out ó A Great Value

There are no financial barriers to participating in National Night Out. That always has been our commitment, but in todayís difficult economy, itís worth highlighting . We know communities and local law enforcement agencies are being asked to justify every expense. National Association of Town Watch (NATW), the sponsoring organization of National Night Out, partners with Target Corporation and law enforcement agencies to make sure there are no financial barriers to participating in National Night Out. NATW continues to operate as a lean organization. We are thoughtful about how every dollar is spent, working year-round to help city governments, police departments and grassroots organizers make their National Night Out events successful and their communities better places to live.

Thank you in advance for your interest, support and early response.

Why Do Police Pick Up Garage Sale Signs?

Under the direction of the City Council, the City of Robinson is dedicated to making Robinson a beautiful place to live. In helping to accomplishing this, the Robinson Police Department is tasked with enforcing the City's ordinances which include enforcing the garage sale sign ordinance. This effectively helps prevent the proliferation of garage sale signs placed improperly in Robinson.

Robinson recognizes the need for these signs. Three reasons to regulate garage sale signs are to preserve and improve the visual quality of Robinson, to eliminate hazards to pedestrians and motorists brought about by the distraction of signs, and to ensure compatibility with adjacent and surrounding areas.

When garage sale signs are posted illegally, the police department will remove signs that are not in compliance with the Code of Ordinances. Removed garage sale signs can be recovered at the police department within 24 hours of their being removed.
