Carol Stream police to grill neighbors food at ''night against crime''

CAROL STREAM, Illinois (Daily Herald) -- Residents in Carol Stream will make a statement tonight with scores of other residents in DuPage County who want to make their neighborhoods safer and more secure.

Some 800 people are expected on the grounds of the Outreach Community Center on the village's southeast side for the eighth annual National Night Out Against Crime. Deputy Police Chief Jim Linane and other officers will be grilling hot dogs for residents and passing out literature on Neighborhood Watch programs and other safety programs.

Linane said officers will be in plain clothes to meet and greet residents, who live in about 10 apartment complexes near the outreach center.

"It's good that they see us away from the department and away from being in uniform," Linane said. "It's a little softer appearance and approach."

National Night Out Against Crime was founded by the National Association of Town Watch some 14 years ago to bring communities together to fight crime and improve their neighborhoods.

Over the years, a growing number of communities in DuPage County have been joining the fold and holding activities every Aug. 1. Besides Carol Stream, where there will be a family barbecue and children's activities, events also are planned in West Chicago, Glendale Heights and other towns.

Vanessa Roth, director of the outreach center in Carol Stream, said the events also allow residents the opportunity to meet each other.

"These kind of events help us feel more attached, and give us a sense of ownership of the community," Roth said. "It's a chance to demonstrate our desire to keep crime out of the neighborhood and to be a solid and healthy community."

The public is invited to the event. Linane said officers also will be visiting a couple block parties on the north end of town that have planned events for National Night Out. He said the department also is encouraging residents to turn on all their house lights tonight to show solidarity for safer neighborhoods.
