July 28, 2017

WHAT:                   National Night Out Kickoff Event and Ceremonial Signing for                                               Partnership for Youth Success Program

WHEN:                   10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 29, 2017

WHERE:                 Forest Hill Avenue Target, 7107 Forest Hill Ave

BACKGROUND:     We hope citizens will join Richmond Police and Target stores for a National Night Out Kickoff Event.
Officers will be on hand with crime prevention materials and children’s fingerprinting ID kits. The kickoff party will also include free food.

In addition to the kickoff event, a ceremonial signing will take place at 10 a.m. to launch the partnership with The Richmond Police Department and U.S. Army for the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program. The PaYS Program helps provide job opportunities within the police department for Soldiers after completing their service to the country.
“What better way to continue to help keep our community safe than recruiting these reservists as well as Soldiers who are at the end of their service for the U.S. Army,” said Chief Alfred Durham.

Members of the media are encouraged to attend.
