Lynnwood meets and greets to help fight crime

Aug 10, 2012
Lynnwood residents gathered in 29 different neighborhoods to participate in National Night Out.

Lynnwood Police Department along with the Lynnwood Fire Department, the Mayor, Council members, and staff from the City’s Public Works, Community Development, Code Enforcement and Planning Departments all toured 29 different registered National Night Out against crime events on Aug. 7.

These 29 block-parties represented more than 1,500 people.

These residents all around Lynnwood joined the rest of America and turned their porch lights on, locked their doors and went out to meet their neighbors all in the name of crime prevention.

Members from the Family Support Center of South Snohomish County, Cocoon House of Snohomish County, RP Home Industries and the event’s national sponsor, the Target store, also toured and visited with city residents.

Big thanks to 7-Eleven, “McGruff”- the Crime Fighting Dog also made it to several Lynnwood events on Aug. 7 delivering cool “Operation Chill” coupons for a free Slurpee!

Special thanks go to the following businesses that donated prizes and supported Lynnwood’s National Night Out: the Lynnwood Target and 7-Eleven.
