Carolina Beach Police Beat: Neighborhood Night Out at the Boardwalk

By STEVE STANTON
Carolina Beach Police Advisory Cmt.

CAROLINA BEACH - Tuesday, August 6th, marks the 4th annual National Night Out (NNO) event conducted in Carolina Beach by the Carolina Beach Police Department and the Police Advisory Committee. 
NNO will take place at the Boardwalk starting at 7PM near the Gazebo.  CBPD officers will be present as will Sheriff Ed McMahon and deputies from the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office. 
This is your opportunity to meet and talk to law enforcement officers about crime prevention or other issues. The CBPD would like to hear your comments about parking and pedestrian traffic on the Island.  Please feel free to comment to any of the CBPD officers or the Police Advisory Committee members that will be present.  The Police Advisory Committee will also conduct its monthly meeting at this time and welcomes residents to bring their concerns to the meeting.
Tuesday at the Boardwalk is also Family Night and a great opportunity to enjoy the Boardwalk while giving children an opportunity to interact with law enforcement.  Carolina Beach Police will be making child ID cards for those that wish to have them for their children.  Chief Griffin and members of the CB Fire Department will be present with a fire truck for all to inspect and to answer questions you may have. 
New this year, members of the New Hanover Regional Emergency Medical Services will be present with an ambulance and welcome your questions.
NNO is a national event that is taking place in over 16,000 communities around the country. 
Its focus is to increase the growth of neighborhood watch groups and alert residents to report suspicious behavior and crime. All the departments will have give-a-ways for children who visit the event. Once again this year, Target Department Stores will have associates there to interact with all. 
Target is a national sponsor of NNO and promotes the event. Target will also have free items for those who attend and the local store looks forward to their return visit to Carolina Beach NNO. 
On Tuesday evening, August 6th, consider bringing the family to the Boardwalk for a fun and educational event for all.
The Carolina Beach Police Advisory Committee meets at 7PM at Town Hall on the first Monday of the month. Call 910-458-2999 for more information.
