08 - 08 - 2012 Crowds came out for National Night Out
LEWISTOWN - The 10th annual National Night Out was held Tuesday evening at Rec Park in Lewistown. The National Night Out observance is designed to help foster safe neighborhoods and promote positive relationships between the community and local law enforcement. The event was sponsored locally by the Lewistown Police Department, Mifflin County Communities that Care, Downtown Lewistown Inc., and community watch organizers throughout the borough. Volunteers from the community watch organizations assisted in various activities making the night a success. Lewistown and Granville Township police were on hand throughout the evening. Some helped fingerprint children for their identification cards. Parents receive these cards which also have a place for a photo and important information regarding the child. Police advise parents to have the identification cards updated each year because they can be very helpful in the event a child is lost or missing.
