“Our goal is to bring the community together and raise awareness of crime prevention in Wylie,” said Officer Angie McIntosh. “We continue to promote a strong community network of active, involved citizens, working hand in hand with the police to keep the crime rate dropping lower and lower.”
As in years past, citizens are encouraged to return home after the event, turn their porch lights on, and meet their neighbors in a show of unity against criminal activity.
