BURBANK -- Community liaison officers in the Burbank Police Department
are considering holding events in the city for National Night Out Against
Crime next year.
The department does not celebrate the national event, which is
designed to promote interaction between police and communities.
In surrounding communities, such as Glendale and Tujunga, the event is
characterized by block parties and entertainment with police schmoozing
with local residents.
Burbank Police officers would like to see something similar.
"I'd like to have one near San Fernando Road -- some kind of social
event," said Burbank Police Officer Darin Ryburn. "It will be one of our
goals for next year."
