KSLA News 12 Editorial: Sept. 26th-Night Out

Posted: Updated:

Next Tuesday we all have a chance to do our part in the fight against crime. In Shreveport and Bossier City officials have called for a Night Out.

You are asked to turn on your outside lights and are encouraged to organize or participate in neighborhood get-togethers that evening.

It's an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention, create police-community partnerships and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

We all know that it takes more than a police force to battle crime. Each of us has to play a part by being aware of what is going on in our neighborhoods and to call the police when something is not right.

The Night Out is a reminder of the role we should play.

I'm James Smith.
