National Night Out event set for Saturday

MOULTRIE — National Night Out, canceled earlier this month due to weather, has been rescheduled for 11 a.m.-1 p.m. today at the Jim Buck Goff Recreation Complex on 11th Avenue Southwest.

“This is a great partnership between law enforcement agencies throughout the city and county and community partners,” Moultrie Police Chief Frank Lang said of the event sponsored by that agency and the City of Moultrie.

The event will include hot dogs, activities and door prizes. Organizations, agencies and groups from Moultrie and Colquitt County will have displays with information to educate participants about activities and programs available.

National Night Out, a year-long community-building campaign, is designed to heighten crime-prevention awareness, generate support and participation for anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals.
