District Attorney Hoovler Announces That District Attorney’s Office Will Participate in 2019 National Night Out Against Crime
District Attorney and ADAs to Participate at All Seven Orange County Events
County Executive Neuhaus, Sheriff DuBois, and
County Clerk Rabbitt to Also Make Appearances
Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler announced that on Tuesday, August 6, 2018, he and members of his staff will appear at the National Night Out Against Crime events being held in Orange County, as part of the District Attorney’s community prosecution initiative. District Attorney Hoovler will personally appear at each venue, in the Cities of Newburgh, Middletown, and Port Jervis; the Towns of New Windsor, Mount Hope, and Wallkill; and the Village of Highland Falls. Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus, Sheriff Carl DuBois, and County Clerk Annie Rabbit are also expected to make appearances during the evening.
At each location, the District Attorney’s Office will have a table staffed by one or two Assistant District Attorneys or other District Attorney’s Office staff, displaying literature publicizing District Attorney Hoovler’s community prosecution program and other initiatives of the District Attorney’s Office. Staff will also offer free items designed to provide the public with information that might be valuable in crime prevention. This is the sixth year that District Attorney Hoovler will appear at every National Night Out venue in the County, and the fifth year where District Attorney’s Office employees will staff every venue.
“Now, more than ever, it is essential that we keep open the lines of communication between the public and law enforcement,” said District Attorney Hoovler, “and National Night Out is an important part of that effort. Since before I became your District Attorney, I have made that communication one of my top priorities. In 2014, I created the Special Projects and Community Affairs Bureau, designed to facilitate communication with our communities. National Night Out is one way for us to reach citizens, so that, together, we can address problems that lead to crime in our communities and can work together to solve those crimes that do occur.”
