Claremore Police to host 3rd annual ‘National Night Out’


The Claremore Police Department will host the city’s third annual “National Night Out” event from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday at Gazebo Park. 
Officers will be on hand to answer questions and interact with local residents interested in promoting safety and security within the community.
“National Night Out” is a year-long community building campaign, designed to heighten crime prevention awareness and generate support for — and participation in — local anticrime programs, said Claremore Police Chief Stan Brown.
“Last year was a tremendous success. Children had fun, (local agencies) made new friends and progress was made toward our goal to make this the best and safest community in the state,” he said. 
The mission of the event is to promote safety, security and an improved quality of life for the city.  
This year’s celebration will focus on child safety and education. Literature and handouts will be provided by the ABLE commission and Rogers County RX Drug Abuse Task Force, an affiliate of Healthy Community Partnership. ABLE representatives will have a “tattoo” booth set up for children and task force members will have a prize wheel, allowing attendees to spin for prizes.  
During “National Night Out,” the RX Drug Task Force will partner with the Rogers County Sheriff’s Office to host a drug take-back event. Residents will have the opportunity to drop off unused prescription or over-the-counter medications, ensuring safe disposal and preventing the drugs from getting into the wrong hands. 
Family activities will include two water slides, inflatables, free snow cones and drinks. Perry Dogs will provide free hot dogs to the first 400 attendees.
“The night out represents a stronger neighborhood spirit, sending a message to criminals letting them know that residents are organized and fighting back,” said Brown. “We look forward to seeing another great turnout.”
