Sheriff's Office to participate in National Night Out

Eldersburg & New Windsor, Carroll County, Maryland, July 26, 2016 ---- Joining the national crime prevention effort, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office will once again participate in “National Night Out Against Crime” activities, scheduled for Tuesday August 2, 2016. Aimed at bringing local communities and law enforcement together, “Night Out” activities will begin at 6:00 pm on the Carnival Grounds at the Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department in Eldersburg, and at 6:30 pm on the New Windsor Fire Company’s Carnival Grounds.

This year’s “Night Out Against Crime” marks the 33rd anniversary of the national event, which serves to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in local anticrime programs, and send a message to criminals that the community is organized in a policing partnership against crime.

The Sheriff’s Office is pleased to join with the Town of New Windsor, the New Windsor Fire Department, the Sykesville Freedom District Fire Department, the Sykesville Police Department, and other County and local government partners, in participating in these events.

A few of the scheduled activities and static displays include: Refreshments, live music, kids’ activities, Fire Rescue Apparatus, and Sheriff’s Office equipment displays at both locations.

Additional National Night Out locations in Carroll County include the Manchester Volunteer Fire Company, which begins at 6:00 pm, and the North Carroll Farms pavilion on Upper Forde Lane in Hampstead, which begins at 6:30pm. If you are unable to attend any of the “National Night Out Against Crime” events, but still wish to support the effort, you may do so by lighting your front porch lights.
