Hispanic National Night Out in Tulsa

The Citizens Crime Commission and Tulsa Police hope crime prevention is on the minds of many people. That thought comes after a big national night out party.

Several hundred people took part in the fun at McClure Park Thursday night. It’s a chance for them to learn more about crime prevention, neighborhood watch programs, and services available to help them fight crime.

National Night Out is also a chance for neighbors to get to know each other and police. This year, the Crime Commission worked to focus attention to serving Tulsa's growing Hispanic population.

Tulsa resident Francisco Berales: “I think it's a pretty good deal you know that to make a better relationship between the law and the Spanish community."

As many as 70,000 Hispanics live in Tulsa. But the Tulsa Police Department has only about a dozen registered Spanish interpreters.

Efforts are ongoing to recruit more bilingual police officers.
