NATIONAL NIGHT OUT 2011
The Monroe Circuit Court Probation Department participated with more than 30 other local agencies in celebrating National Night Out with the Bloomington’s Crestmont community on August 2, 2011. Several probation employees worked to provide literature, Crayons, coloring books, Popsicles, and to play Corn Hole with festival visitors.
The purpose of National Night Out is to strengthen neighborhoods by building community-police relationships, raise crime and drug awareness and build neighborhood support for anti-crime programs.
One young boy there asked, “What is a Court?” The event allowed an opportunity to educate and befriend many folks in the community.
Representing the local probation department were probation officers: Susan Allen, Julie Robertson, Erin Werner, Valerie Collins, Christine McAfee, Brenda Ogborn, and Tom Rhodes.
