Pleasanton Police Chief Ronald Sanchez extends an invitation to the public to come on out to the Pleasanton Police Department’s 5th Annual National Night Out on Oct. 3. The event will take place at the Atascosa River Park in Pleasanton from 6-9 p.m. and will feature a Hollywood theme.
Bring the family for food, music, bounce houses, games and to visit with law enforcement and local organizations.
“Every year our crowds are growing bigger and bigger. Another thing we want to emphasize this year is we’d like to see more neighborhood’s follow Oak Forest’s lead and form several Neighborhood Watches in our community,” said Chief Sanchez. “Oak Forest is, I think a model program. The whole city would benefit from this, so if any of your constituents are interested, we will help however we can to get them started. Much of this petty theft that occurs can be solved just by neighbors looking out for one another,” Sanchez told council.
Pleasanton Mayor Clinton J. Powell also read the proclamation at the Sept. 21 council meeting declaring National Night Out in Pleasanton. The nationwide event promotes cooperative police-community crime-prevention efforts. He called on Pleasanton citizens to join the Pleasanton PD and the National Association of Town Watch in supporting the 34th annual National Night Out.
