For Immediate Release

MUNDELEIN, IL—July 27, 2015—The Mundelein Police Department is hosting its annual National Night Out celebration on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. in the Santa Maria Del Popolo parking lot (corner of Seymour and Courtland) and all Mundelein residents are invited to participate.

Thousands of communities nationwide will participate in the “32nd Annual National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event.  National Night Out, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Village of Mundelein, will involve people from more than 16,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world.  In all, over 37 million people are expected to participate.

The event begins with face painting, tie-dye t-shirts, Mundelein Fire Department engine rides, fun activities with Super Target Mundelein, a K-9 Demonstration with Titan and Officer Steven Kroll, and much more. Tony Dogs will be there with hot dogs and other snacks for purchase. We will also have free popcorn, and snow cones.

At dark, the Police Department will begin its feature presentation, showing “Big Hero 6” outdoors on a 45-foot screen. Residents are encouraged to bring a blanket or chair and join their neighbors, family, friends, and the Mundelein Police Officers for a fun night.

National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” began as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

National Project Coordinator, Matt Peskin said, “This is a night for America to stand together and promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight for a safer nation. We invite neighborhoods nationwide to join us and “give crime a going away party.”
