Celebrate National Night Out in Colorado

Celebrate the 28th Annual National Night Out in Colorado and throughout the country on Tuesday evening, August 2. National Night Out has been billed as America’s Night Out Against Crime. The NNO 2011 Campaign involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, and business and neighborhood organizations from over 15,000 communities in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and U.S. military bases worldwide.

The goals of the National Night Out are to:

  • heighten crime- and drug-prevention awareness
  • generate support for local anticrime programs
  • strengthen neighborhood spirit and police communication partnerships

Solidarity and support of NNO is commonly shown by the traditional display of outdoor lighting including front porch lights, landscape/architectural lighting and through the participation in front porch vigils and neighborhood get-togethers.

Landscape Lighting Makes This Home Safer and More Secure

As the owner of a lighting company, I’ve been trained and well-versed in the art of illumination to remove “dark and scary” spaces around the perimeter of a home and property. Local law enforcement repeatedly advises homeowners that lighting is a key component of crime prevention. The City of Golden’s Police Department states that:

it is a recognized fact that good lighting is a deterrant to crime. It not only makes the area safer for the homeowner, but also forces the intruder to work in an area where he may be exposed and reported to the police.
