Giving Crime the “Blues” – Special Concert and Law Enforcement Event at the Court House Plaza       

On Friday, August 2, 2019, at 6 PM, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office, and several of its law enforcement partners including the Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and Tribal Police Departments, along with the Attorney General’s Office and others, will host the annual National Night Out Kick-Off Concert. 

National Night Out itself occurs every year on the first Tuesday in August – this year, August 6, 2019. The National Night Out (NNO) campaign takes place all across the U.S. and is designed to raise crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood unity and spirit, and further develop partnerships between Law Enforcement agencies and the community. At the core of these programs is Neighborhood Watch – residents and business owners uniting with their law enforcement representatives to reduce crime.  

The goal of this event on August 2nd, which is expected to conclude at 8:30PM, is to highlight and remind community members about NNO and provide an opportunity for the public to meet various law enforcement agencies in one place. Agency reps will be on hand to talk about their planned NNO activities, answer questions, and share crime prevention information. We encourage those in YCSO based neighborhood watch programs to attend. 

For the 7th year hosting, local blues band “Road One South” will perform during the August 2nd event in conjunction with the Summer Concert Series. Their show will be tailored to highlight some of the many activities also occurring that evening including displays and information from various area law enforcement agencies, K9 officers, special vehicle displays, etc. Kids of all ages can meet Deputy Do-Right, YCSO’s child safety mascot.  

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy the music, displays and the opportunity to meet your local law enforcement representatives as we unite to “Give Crime and Criminals the Blues!”
