2019 National Night Out Registration.jpg

National Night Out Against Crime is an annual event National Association of Town Watch (NATW) designed to strengthen our communities by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners. National Night Out program culminates annually, on the first Tuesday of August. National Night Out Against Crime 2019 will be celebrated on Tuesday August 6th.

The introduction of “America’s Night Out Against Crime” in 1984 began as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part of this celebration.

“National Night Out” involves millions of neighbors participating across thousands of communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. The traditional “lights on” campaign and symbolic front porch vigils turned into a celebration across America with various events and activities including block parties, cookouts, parades, visits from Public Safety and City authorities and personnel, exhibits, youth events, safety demonstrations and seminars, in effort to heighten awareness and enhance community relations.

While SSAS cleans up the immediate area every day of operation, we wanted to do something larger scale to benefit the neighborhood. From 9 am to 11:30 am on 6/11, we will have 50+ volunteers tidying the streets and alleyways of the neighborhoods surrounding Brookside and Damien Center. This clean up includes a strike team dedicated to searching for and properly disposing of any discarded syringes in the neighborhood. I would like to invite you to stop by Brookside to see our progress.

East Castleton CLEAN-UP day
April 27, 2019, 9:00 AM at 82nd street from I-69 e to Clearvista pkwy

It is obvious that the city of Indianapolis has a huge problem with litter. The city government will pick up only trash that is illegally dumped on a property or is blocking a right-of-way. It is up to us, as citizens, to maintain the beauty and value of our own areas. We all do a great job of maintaining the properties within our neighborhoods, but the streets that surround us are unsightly. I wanted to confirm that we will be gathering as a group to address the deteriorating conditions along 82nd street from I-69 east to Clearvista Pkwy on Saturday, April 27th, from 9:00AM - 12:00PM. The medians, islands, sidewalks under the I-69 bridge, and grass culverts in the area are cluttered with litter, loose gravel, dead weeds, broken glass, etc.  If we sit back and allow this to continue, an erosion of property values and attitudes in general will come our way.  I've spent many hours on this specific topic with the Department of Public Works, including offering our services to get the medians adopted near Shadeland Ave., but the city's adoption process only includes medians that contain grass that needs to be mowed on a regular basis. I am currently working with INDOT to see if they will help us with the intersections in the area that lead on and off I-69.

Rules and public policy committee of the Indianapolis City-County Council
November 20, 2018, 5:30 PM at 200 E. Washington Street, Rm. T241, Indianapolis, in 46204

Dear Friend:

I'm inviting you to come testify on Tuesday in support of the proposed sit/lie ordinance. On November 20, the Rules and Public Policy Committee of the Indy City-County Council will hear PROPOSAL NO. 357, 2018 – which “amends the Code to adopt new provisions prohibiting the sitting or lying upon the surface of a public right-of-way at certain times within the Downtown Mile Square on the agenda.”

I am hopeful that this important proposal, which is intended to increase the security and safety of area residents and those visiting the Downtown area, will succeed by keeping people from sitting or lying on the streets and sidewalks. Not only is safety a concern here, but the Tourism & Convention business of Indianapolis is being damaged due to visitors being harassed by aggressive panhandlers as well as area businesses having to deal with those who block their entrances and agitate their customers.

The issue of our homeless neighbors has been raised in this conversation as well, and safeguards to help get those who are in need to shelters and other places where they may receive assistance are being planned as well.

If you are concerned about keeping our Downtown corridor safe, and have the time to testify before the Rules Committee Tuesday at 5:30pm, please consider joining me and letting your feelings be known. Citizens are allowed up to two minutes to testify before the committee members. I am hopeful that advocates for the safety of our city will attend and ask our Indy Councillors to vote YES to protect our city.

ANNual Sargent Road Cleanup
April 28, 2018, 9 AM. meet at mud creek barn on 86th Street

This has been one long winter for all of us but it won't be long now until our beautiful corridor of Sargent Road is going to look like this once again.  Over the winter, littering has made our road look less than perfect and we would like to enlist your help on April 28th at 9:00 a.m. in picking up the trash along the road.  We will first meet at the Mud Creek Barn on 86th St. to learn where we can help.  We will have gloves, grabbers, and bright orange vests provided for our use and the Sargent Road corridor will have limited police protection.  In order for the full stretch to be cleaned up, we need many volunteers.  Won't you consider joining the Litterbusters for this important event?
