“Citizens who take pride in their neighborhood and partner with police efforts permit a sense of community to thrive, and significantly reduce the likelihood that serious crimes will occur. I invite everyone in Provo to ‘turn on your porch lights’ on August 7th in support of National Night Out and send a message to criminals that we are determined to end crime in our City’s neighborhoods.”
