Caln Township and neighboring communities are invited to join forces with communities nationwide for the 34th Annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and cosponsored locally by the Caln Township Police Department. The annual event will involve more than 16,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases around the world. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in local anti-crime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships; and to let criminals know that neighborhoods are organized. This community event will be held on Tuesday, August 1, from 6 p.m. to dark at Caln Municipal Park on Municipal Drive in Thorndale. The event will include crime prevention and public safety awareness, as well as attractions for the entire family.
