NNO 2016Sunrise Police Department to Host
“National Night Out”

The Sunrise Police Department will host its annual "National Night Out Against Crime" celebration on Tuesday, August 2, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Sunrise Public Safety Building (10440 West Oakland Park Boulevard).

National Night Out provides Sunrise residents with access to crime-prevention information and services - including child fingerprinting. The event will also feature free refreshments, live music, children's activities, a K-9 demonstration, equipment displays, and an appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog.

National Night Out is observed each year in communities across the U.S. The event helps raise crime prevention awareness, as well as strengthen relationships between police officers and the neighborhoods they serve. It's also designed to generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs - and let would-be criminals know that communities are organized and mobilized against crime.

Protect Yourself from Mosquito Bites
Preventing mosquito bites enhances your enjoyment of outdoor activities, and can protect you from exposure to Zika and all mosquito-borne illnesses. The Florida Department of Health reminds you to DRAIN and COVER to safeguard you and your family.

Mosquitoes can breed in as little as one teaspoon or a bottle cap of water. To stop mosquitoes from multiplying, DRAIN standing water from garbage cans, house gutters, pool covers, tarps, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected.

Mosquitoes can bite any time of the day or night. COVER your skin with long sleeves and pants, and use mosquito repellent according to package instructions. Also be sure to COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out.

For additional resources, visit or call (954) 467-4700.
