Eldersburg & New Windsor, Carroll County, Maryland, August 1, 2014 ---- Joining the national crime prevention effort, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office will once again participate with the Freedom Area Citizens Council, and the Town of New Windsor, in “National Night Out Against Crime” activities, scheduled for Tuesday August 5, 2014. Aimed at bringing local communities and law enforcement together, “Night Out” activities will begin at 6:00pm 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 31st 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.

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.
