The Frederick Police Department was recently named a National Award Winner by the National Association of Town Watch for its outstanding participation in the 35th Annual National Night Out this year. Frederick was one of 33 towns with a population between 5,000 and 15,000 across the United States to receive this honor, and the only Colorado winner in that population bracket.
Frederick has a very active Neighborhood Watch group and eight neighborhoods hosted National Night Out celebrations for their neighborhoods in 2018. Officers worked their way around Frederick to participate in each celebration throughout the evening. It was the 10th year for Frederick to participate in the national program which is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
“We strive to work hard to build a partnership within our Neighborhood Watch program here in Frederick,” said Frederick Police Chief Todd Norris. “This award is a reflection of all the hard work and commitment between citizens and police officers working together in the community.”
The 35th Annual National Night Out campaign involved 38 million neighbors across 16,000 communities. You can see the full list of winners at https://natw.org/award-winners.
Anyone interested in learning more about or joining the Neighborhood Watch Program is encouraged to contact the Frederick Police Department at 720.382.5700.
