National Night Out Against Crime
National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention. It's a great way to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a DelMarVa summer evening surrounded by friends and family. Maybe not in Delmar but you can join the Snow Hill Police Department and the Worcester County Sheriff's Department for their National Night Out Celebration in Byrd Park. I also believe in Princess Anne there is some kind of party. Salisbury will have theirs at the City Park starting at 6:00 PM.
National Night Out was developed by Matt Peskin who is alleged to be considerably overpaid consuming roughly 1/3 of his organization's annual budget on his salary and benefits. In 2005, his combined compensation totalled $297,000, typical for the CEO of a non-profit 50 times the size of NATW, according to NonProfit Times, a business publication covering nonprofit management
