Neighborhood leaders celebrate National Night Out success


The 2018 National Night Out turned out to be the county’s biggest one yet.

Eighty-seven neighborhoods throughout Shawnee county participated in the event.

Sponsors and neighborhood leaders were recognized tonight at the wrap up meeting.

Safe Streets director Kristi Pankratz said one of the highlights from this year’s event is the amount of new neighborhoods that took part.

“A number of new neighborhoods formed and that’s what we love to see,” said Pankratz. “We’ve got a lot of neighborhoods that are talking about meeting regularly now, which is what we’re really excited about because that’s the overall purpose of the event.”

Registration is now open for next year’s national night out which will take place on Aug. 10. For information on how you can register your neighborhood, you can visit their site here.
