National Night Out
Jefferson Park was abuzz with activity last night as residents gathered for National Night Out hosted by the Pasadena Police Department. National Night Out is an annual event that promotes crime prevention.

In addition to many police officers on hand at the park last night, police volunteers played an important role in providing educational information.
Parents had an opportunity to get their children's fingerprints into a police database.
Pasadena firefighters cooked up hot dogs on their special grill.
Several other City of Pasadena departments had tables at the event. Jan Sanders (left), director of the Pasadena Public Library system, and Catherine Hany, library communications manager, provided information about library services.
