National Night Out moves to October
National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” began in 1984 as an effort to promote community involvement in crime prevention activities, develop police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, and to send a message to criminals telling them that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
For the past 15 years, Mohave Electric members have enjoyed NNO in mid-summer despite sweltering temperatures. The annual event which is held across the nation is traditionally scheduled the first Tuesday in August – our hottest time of the year. Beginning this year, we will join Texan’s in hosting NNO on the first Tuesday in October.
Help us work together to keep Bullhead City a safe community. Join us Tuesday, October 7th at 5:30 pm, at our Member Service Office, 928 Hancock Road. Join in the fight against crime. Give criminals a message they are not welcome in our neighborhoods.
