Sheriff Lane Cribb and the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone who attended the 31st annual National Night Out event on Tues., Aug. 5.
The event was a huge success due to the hard work of everyone involved.
The following participants and organizations ensured all who attended had an enjoyable time:
Georgetown City Fire, Georgetown County Fire and EMS, Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department, Georgetown County Sheriff’s Employees, Pepsi-Cola, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, St. Frances Animal Center, and Wal-Mart.
National Night Out is a community building campaign designed to:
Heighten crime prevention awareness
Generate support and participation in anti-crime programs
Strengthen neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships
Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back
Sheriff Lane Cribb commented, “Providing a fun and safe outing for the entire family brings a community together and forms a positive relationship with law enforcement and other agencies. I think next year will be even bigger and better.”
