Criminal Free-for-All Planned for August 2
Good news, criminals of Broward County!
No, the meals at county lockup aren't getting any better, but local law enforcement will soon provide a prime opportunity for you to make the most of your illicit gifts.
On August 2, the Broward Sheriff's Office is throwing a party for the National Night Out Against Crime. The department is inviting residents of south Broward to its district headquarters, located at 3201 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd., from 6 to 8 p.m. that Tuesday for "fun, food, and beverages."
There's also going to be a meet and greet with BSO Chief Nichole Anderson and many deputies. Also, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Dania Beach's C.W. Thomas Park, located at 800 NW First St., there will be "free food, water & soda, music, games & a bounce house" to kick off anticrime events.
What does this mean for you, purveyors of SoFla's soft underbelly?
You've got at least two hours to burgle and rob your way through the county, considering a lot of people won't be at home and a lot of cops will be concentrated in one place. You'd almost be a model citizen if you didn't take advantage of this opportunity to pillage and vandalize. And what perp wants to mess up his or her street cred for lack of proper planning?
So mark your calendars now. With a little creative scheduling, the National Night Out Against Crime certainly doesn't have to be crime-free.
