Binghamton Celebrates Night Out Against Drugs and Crime

The 19th Annual Binghamton Night Out against Drugs and Crime is just around the corner.
 
The event will take place on Tuesday, August 5 and include block parties, exhibits, rallies, and safety demonstrations.  National night out is a country-wide initiative that is in it's 31st year and is celebrated by more than 16,000 communities in the United States and here in Binghamton, Mayor Rich David and his community partners for this event are sending a specific message.

Mayor Rich David said, "That message is that the community will come together to send a message that we care about our community, and that we're not going to let criminal activity take place in our community."

Rev. Henry J. Ausby said, "While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs, and violence, national night out represents the kind of spirit, the energy, and the kind of determination that is necessary to help make a safer neighborhood."

Binghamton and Johnson City Police Chief Joeseph Zikuski also noted that one goal of these events is to get local children involved in the community, and to show them that police officers are looking out for them, as well as the adults.
