Woodbury Public Safety believes that effective crime prevention begins with strong neighborhood and law enforcement partnerships,” Public Safety Director Lee Vague said in statement before last year's event.

Sure thing Cathy, it's a cool deal. Neat last year to find a block that's been doing it for almost 15 years.
