National Night Out 2011
The Ogden Avenue Block Watch partnered with the Columbus Division
of Police and the Target Corporation on Tuesday, Aug. 2nd, 2011 for the Ogden Avenue Block Watch National Night Out Neighborhood
Festival which was an evening long event that promotes crime prevention. The
event was located on S. Ogden Avenue just north of W. Mound Street (approximately at 700 South Ogden Avenue). This area is
in the central Hilltop area of West Columbus.
Goals of the event are for residents to build a trust with one another
along with members of law enforcement, a chance to open the lines of communication with their neighbors along with the many
elected officials which will be in attendance, and also a chance to enlighten and educate children and adults on issues facing
the community. Along with crime prevention activities, there will be plenty of entertainment on hand.
National Night Out is a nationwide event that invites residents to stand with community leaders
and local police to give crime a going away party. This is the 27th year for the event that has over 10,000 participating
communities. The National Association of Town Watch sponsors the nationwide event. The South Ogden Avenue Block Watch hosts
annual cleanups, National Night Out Festival, and forums bringing together residents of the area with Police and local leaders.
