Southwest Community Gathers for National Night Out to Promote Peace

Mayor Steven C. Bateman, Councilman Jimmie L. Williams III, and Councilwoman Patricia Fairclough-McCormick participated in the 2012 National Night Out event. National Night Out, also known as NNO, is a crime and drug prevention event that brings together residents, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials to focus on crime in order to send a message to criminals that the community is proactive and will not tolerate crime in their neighborhood.

The event began at the Phicol Williams Community Center, where a backpack were donated to students for the new school year and numerous organizations such as, We Care, Galata, Inc. and en Familia, Inc., distributed literature and information about their services to the community. The group then took to the streets to walk around the Southwest neighborhood to show their support for peace.
The event was organized by South Dade Weed and Seed, a Homestead Police Department initiative. Some of the major contributors event were the City of Homestead, Homestead Police Department, Southwest Advisory Committee, Mayor's Policing & Crime Watch Committee, the Children's Trust, and Humana.

Throughout the years, NNO events have proved to be an effective, inexpensive, memorable and enjoyable program to generate support and participation in local anti-crime programs. The City of Homestead and the Homestead Police Department are committed to providing a safe environment that is free of crime, violence, and drug use in order for law-abiding citizens to live, work, and raise their families in comfort and peace.
