The Burbank Police Department would like to extend its appreciation to all of the city's residents, employees and volunteers for making this year's National Night Out one of the most successful the city of Burbank has sponsored ("A neighborly effort to increase safety," Aug. 4). More than 1,000 citizens came to the citywide event at Keystone and Chandler, and several hundred residents were involved in one of the 18 block parties!
The National Night Out event started as a nationwide, one-night rally where citizens and police officers join forces to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. We exist to protect and to serve our citizens, and it is this vital partnership that gives the Burbank Police Department its strength and enthusiasm toward the pursuit of this goal.
In addition, the Burbank Police Department proudly recognizes the generous donation of $2,500 from Target, which was used to support the National Night Out events.
