The text from a letter sent out by the Crime Prevention Unit appears below. If you're a creative artsy type, your talents could win a BBQ event for your neighborhood:


June 25, 2009

Dear Neighborhood Watch Members:

On Tuesday, August 4, 2009, Neighborhoods across the Nation will be hosting block parties, socials and neighborhood gatherings to recognize National Night Out. National Night Out (NNO) is a nationwide crime prevention campaign that reminds residents to take a stance against crime, be good neighbors, join Neighborhood Watch groups, in turn, send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized against crime.

This year Pomona Police Department is encouraging all Neighborhood Watch Groups to join us for our annual celebration at 400 Civic Center Plaza from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. We will still have our contest!!!!

How to win the BBQ dinner for your NW Group: Develop a winning flyer that will be used to promote next year’s (2010) NNO event. The flyer should be festive and convey the spirit of National Night Out. Entrees should be on 8 1/2 x 11 paper and should outline your theme/ideas for 2010’s NNO celebration (be creative).

How to win the “Ice Cream Social” for future meeting: All early registered Neighborhood Watch Groups will be placed in a drawing and one (1) group will be selected in a random drawing to win an “Ice Cream Social”.

We also have great prizes donated by local businesses. Only registered Neighborhood Watch Group members are eligible for NNO drawing.

As you can see, this year’s NNO plans are just a little different from last year’s celebration. We truly want groups to uniquely celebrate and promote this special evening that depicts Neighbors helping Neighbors to Fight Crime. The City of Pomona would like to show it’s appreciation for the outstanding service you provide in improving the quality of life for all citizens. Come out and join the fun!

All entrees for the contest and early registration forms must be submitted by Friday, July 24th . Mail your forms to: Pomona Police Dept.

  1. What does this year's flyer look like, does anyone know?

  2. I'll post a copy as a separate blog entry. Upon viewing the flyer, I suspect others will agree the contest is a wise idea.
