National Night Out
Getting to Know Neighbors/Meeting Police

Wayne Howard
News Journalist

The first Tuesday in August is observed in most states as National Night Out.  The City of Lincolnton again participated in the observance, the 30th annual National Night Out program.  Block parties were held in several neighborhoods.  Police made a point of visiting some of those locations to get acquainted with residents and to let them know that the police department needs their help in keeping Lincolnton's crime rate low. 

The food and fellowship also allowed residents to chat with their neighbors--some of whom may have been strangers until the Tuesday night get-together.  Police Chief Rodney Jordan agreed that knowing your neighbors is a good way to prevent crime.  Seeing a stranger at a neighbor's house when the occupants are not home is cause for concern and police are always glad to check it out--just in case.

Jordan was on-hand at the Crestview National Night Out event along with City Manager Jeff Emory.

Other Night Out parties were held in communities all over town including both the Republican and Democrat Headquarters.  Children played games while the adults talked and all enjoyed food and in some locations music.  DJ John Barkley entertained in the Crestview neighborhood and there was also music at the party on Pine Street.

Lt. Mac Painter of the Lincolnton Police Department said he believes it's just as important for the citizens to know police as it is for the police to know the people.
