National Night Out and a Movie Under the Stars
Posted by Mitchell Englander on August 05, 2016 at 9:13 AM
This Tuesday, I was proud to join the Los Angeles Police Department's Devonshire Division to present a Movie Under the Stars for National Night Out, "America's Night Out Against Crime." Every first Tuesday in August is a national celebration to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. Over 400 people showed up to enjoy a showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens at Northridge Park and meet their local law enforcement officers and community volunteers.
Our “Movies Under the Stars” events are a great way to have a safe and fun family outing and enjoy the summer nights at our public parks. Participants enjoyed free popcorn, face painting and children's activities including a bounce house and raffle.
Thank you to all of the organizations that came out to support this incredible event. Special thanks to our community partners: LAPD Devonshire Division, the Department of Recreation and Parks, Target, Chick-Fil-A, Costco, Ken Sampson of Coldwell Banker, Kona Ice, and ADT Security.
