In Schaumburg there are nineteen neighborhood events and two “village-wide” events for residents. Members of the Schaumburg Police and Fire departments along with Mayor Larson and village Trustees are excited to visit with residents at 21 different neighborhood based National Night Out events. Some events are 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and some events are 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. It’s best to get to the event in the 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. before sunset for the best photo opportunities.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to visit with residents, make new friends and renew a partnership between the community and police department to take a stand against crime,” says police chief Ken Bouche. “The Department takes pride in participating annually.”
Nineteen events are being held in local neighborhoods organized by homeowners associations, apartment communities, and Neighborhood Watch Groups. There are two “village-wide” events for residents without an event in their neighborhood.
