Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero and Carina “La Reina” Moreno join forces with Captain Richard Calderon and the San Jose Police Department for the 25th annual “National Night Out”, a unique crime/drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. Leaders will congregate at the Alma Community Center (136 W Alma Ave, San Jose, CA 95110) Tuesday August 5, 2008 at 6pm. The gang impacted youth in the Alma, Goodyear Mastic, and Tamien communities, are the subject of focus. Alma is a gang impacted area in San Jose.
“National Night Out” is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for local anti-crime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and
police-community partnerships while sending a message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. Last years (NNO) involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 10,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide. In all, over 35 million people participated in (NNO) 2007. For more information on National Night Out visit
