The history of Community Crime Watch Day is an offshoot of the “National Night Out” that falls
under the Neighborhood Watch umbrella. Its purpose is to bring the community and police together. As the event
grows annually, more community minded citizens and businesses have come forward to lend support.
National Night Out has strict guidelines and specific vendors that had to be used. Beaver Falls
Police Department liked the concept, but wanted the freedom to employ more local community support and involvement
without being forced to adhere to the trademarked “National Night Out.” The first event was held outside of the
city building. As the event began to develop more interest, it moved to the area behind the Big Beaver Falls Area
Middle School. This location was not visible enough to attract passers-by, so the police department approached
Geneva College with the suggestion of forming a partnership for the annual event.
Last year, Geneva College became the host site while the Beaver Falls Police remained the event
planners. It became obvious that more community support and involvement would be needed to assist in making the
Community Crime Watch Day a public spirited, one day event that would encourage more people to come annually and
burgeon into a population of residents who are work together.
In 2011, local groups, who wish to work together on improvements that will benefit the future of
Beaver Falls pitched in to help. In 2012, Mr. Shawn Thomas’s ministry U.S.B.F. “Uniting Spirits of Beaver Falls”
pulled their resources to augment the 2012 Fourth Annual Community Crime Watch Day to run a Penny Carnival for
children 12 & under.
Arts and crafts vendors wanted.
Other / information vendors wanted (services, organizations, non-profits, etc.)
Entertainment needed (music, magicians, clowns, face painters, etc.)

A Little Bit of Humor...
A police officer pulls a guy over for speeding and has the following
Officer: "May I see your driver's license?"
Driver: "I don't have one, it was suspended when I got my fifth DUI."
Officer: "May I see the owner's card for this vehicle?"
Driver: "It's not my car, I stole it."
Officer: "The car is stolen?"
Driver: "That's right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the owner's card in the
glove box when I was putting my gun in there."
Officer: "There's a gun in the glove box?"
Driver: "Yes, Sir! That's where I put it after I shot and killed the woman who owns this
car and stuffed her body in the trunk."
Officer: "There's a BODY in the TRUNK ?!?!?"
Driver: "Yes, Sir!"
Hearing this, the officer immediately drew his gun on the driver and called his Captain.
The car was quickly surrounded by police, and the Captain approached the driver, gun drawn to
handle the tense situation.
Captain: "Sir, can I see your license?"
Driver: "Sure. Here it is." It was valid.
Captain: "Who's car is this?"
Driver: "It's mine officer. Here's the owner's card." The driver owned the car.
Captain: "Could you slowly open your glove box so I can see what's in it?"
Driver: "Yes Sir!" Sure enough, there was nothing in the glove box.
Captain: "Would you mind opening your trunk? I was told you said there's a body in
Driver: "No problem." Trunk is opened - no body.
Captain: "I don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you
didn't have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glove box, and that there was a dead
body in the trunk."
Driver: "Yeah, I'll bet that liar told you I was speeding, too."
