Families Learn How To Fight Back At NNO Event

Ten local families came out to First Baptist Church on Saturday, August 3 to learn self-defense techniques to help them ward off any would-be attackers.

Master Jeremy Jackson of Black Belt Leadership Academy gave families hands-on demonstrations and taught them several strategies that even the youngest children could implement.

After a demonstration and practice session, Officer Deck of the Sanford Police Department's Community Policing Division gave parents some practical advice for making themselves, their families, and their property less vulnerable.

Before and after the event, children learned more about work zone safety. They loved trying on the hard hat and vest worn by the City's crews.

Stay tuned for our big National Night Out update. We're still sifting through 500+ photos and videos from the night.

We have been on the phone with our coordinators all week and everyone reports that this year's turnout was the best yet! Thank you to everyone who has participated this year!
