REGISTER AN OCTOBER NEIGHBORHOOD EVENT AND GET A FREE EVENT KIT

BOWLING GREEN, KY - The City of Bowling Green Neighborhood &
Community Services Department is again offering free event kits to
neighborhood organizations and others who register a neighborhood social
event to be held in October as part of Bowling Green's "Celebrate Safe
Communities" Month.  This offer is available to neighborhoods located
within the city limits of Bowling Green, while supplies last.  Event
kits include balloons, crime prevention information, nametags, a VISA
gift card and more.

Event details must be finalized and the event registered no later
than September 13 in order to qualify for this offer, but potential
hosts are encouraged to register early, while supplies last.  Check out
this website for links to local Celebrate Safe Communities information
and registration forms:   http://www.bgky.org/police/watch.php
(http://www.bgky.org/police/watch.php).  Hosts can also register their
event online from this page.

Celebrate Safe Communities is brought to you by the National Crime
Prevention Council and the Bureau of Justice Assistance at the U.S.
Department of Justice.  It was developed in 2008 in partnership with
the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) to promote crime prevention in
local communities across the country.  Locally, Bowling Green's
Celebrate Safe Communities Month is coordinated by Neighborhood Services
with participation by Bowling Green Police and Fire Departments.

This year's Celebrate Safe Communities Month has four themes: 
Protecting Your Personal Property, Staying Safe in a High Tech World,
School Safety and Security, and Safety in the Golden
Years.  Information related to all four themes can be found at the
website for this nationwide initiative at
www.celebratesafecommunities.org
(http://www.celebratesafecommunities.org).  

A CSC event can be anything large or small, such as a neighborhood block
party or potluck, a community safety fair, or bike
rodeo. ** **In five years, CSC has reached 500,000 Americans of all
ages in 39 states and Washington, DC. Join the movement to create
communities where everyone works together for public safety.
