Suisun City earns Night Out award

By From page A4 | December 04, 2012

SUISUN CITY — A national organization has awarded Suisun City for its National Night Out activities earlier this year.

Suisun ranked second best in California and 12th in the nation for cities with a population between 15,000 and 49,999 people, according to the National Association of Town Watch.

The city was given the award due to its cooperative police and community crime prevention efforts. The August celebration included a block party at Hall Park that featured a cookout with Chief Mike O’Brien and other firefighters. It also had children’s fingerprinting, jump houses and activities from several local sponsors.

There also were public safety demonstrations and exhibits by the Suisun City Citizens Emergency Response Team, Medic Ambulance, Solano County Sheriff’s Office, Operation Rail Safety, Suisun Wildlife Center, the California Shock Trauma Air Rescue air ambulance service, and other agencies.

City leaders pointed to partnerships as one of the main reasons the parties could take place, even with smaller budgets.

“This was a year with a major restriction on funds that led to some pretty amazing partnerships to leverage our resources to continue our fantastic event,” said City Manager Suzanne Bragdon in a press release.
