National Night Out!

I attened the National Night Out last night at a Los Encinos Park. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. I was passing out support cards for a smoke free McAllen on behalf of the Tobaccco Prevention and Control Coalition. I got a lot of positive responses! What suprised me was that many of the officers that I got to sighn the support cards where not aware that McAllen does not currently have a comprehensive smoking ban, there are bars and clubs that have exemptions to the public smoke free ordinace.
