I wish to thank the editor for his recent Editor’s Corner on National Night Out (NNO) and the benefit it is to our community.

I am receiving many positive comments from citizens on how much they enjoyed the event(s).

I appreciate your remarks on NNO, as it will help to promote crime prevention and awareness in our city.

You all did a wonderful public service in announcing NNO events and telling the story. I anticipate more neighborhoods participating in the coming years. NNO is a timely event with Madera going from number 6 to number 4 rank in higher homicides statewide in five years as reported by Police Chief Steve Frazier. I believe, we tend to live in a state of false security not realizing crime is on the increase in society.

Hopefully, events like NNO and Neighborhood Watch will help us create a safer Madera. Thank you for your support.

Sue Saunders,
City of Madera Neighborhood Outreach specialist
