LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION  commending  the  Fifth Precinct of the New York
City Police Department upon the occasion of hosting National  Night  Out
Against Crime 2012 on Tuesday, August 7, 2012

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and honor
those  distinguished  organizations  which  devote  their  energies  and
purpose in service to the community, helping to  maintain  public  order
and protect the members of the community; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, it is  the  intent  of  this  Legislative  Body  to
commend  the  Fifth Precinct of the New York City Police Department upon
the occasion of hosting National Night Out Against Crime 2012  on  Tues-
day, August 7, 2012; and
  WHEREAS,  The  Fifth Precinct and various community organizations will
join over 34 million people in more than 10,000 communities on August 7,
2012, to promote police-community partnership, crime, drug, and violence
prevention, safety, and neighborhood unity; and
  WHEREAS, National Night  Out  Against  Crime  was  introduced  by  the
National  Association  of  Town  Watch  in 1984 in an effort to heighten
awareness and strengthen participation in local  anticrime  efforts;  to
target  a  larger  group, a national program was proposed which would be
coordinated by local crime prevention agencies and organizations involv-
ing the whole community; and
  WHEREAS, The first National Night Out Against Crime  occurred  on  the
first  Tuesday  in August and has been observed on this date ever since;
and
  WHEREAS, National Night Out Against Crime has proven to be  an  effec-
tive, inexpensive and enjoyable program established to promote neighbor-
hood  spirit  and police-community partnerships in the fight for a safer
nation; and
  WHEREAS, National Night Out Against  Crime  activities  have  expanded
over  the years and now include block parties, cookouts, parades, visits
from local police and sheriff departments, festivals, flashlight  walks,
contests, exhibits, and youth programs; and
  WHEREAS,  National  Night  Out Against Crime has come to represent the
spirit, determination, and energy needed to make neighborhoods safer all
year long; and
  WHEREAS, This occasion provides neighbors with the opportunity to  get
to  know  one  another, to celebrate the importance of community, and to
continue to take those steps necessary to make neighborhoods,  block  by
block,  safer for children, the elderly and, indeed, all residents; now,
therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
commend  the  Fifth Precinct of the New York City Police Department upon
the occasion of hosting National Night Out Against Crime 2012  on  Tues-
day, August 7, 2012; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Fifth Precinct of the New York City Police Department.
