The Covington Police Department will participate in the National Night Out Against Crime on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. Each year, CPD partners with local neighborhood associations to host this nationwide crime prevention event.
The National Night Out Against Crime began in 1984 as a community effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood fellowship and to send a message to criminals that their communities are fighting back. Traditionally, this event is held in August. For the last five years, communities in southern Louisiana have held the event in October to avoid the summer heat. Neighborhoods inside the city limits of Covington wishing to participate may contact Sergeant Trey Mahon at (985)892-8500 or email@example.com .
