National Night Out puts personal face on policing

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT

National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by towns and police departments. The free Aug. 2 event involves more than 16,540 U.S. and Canadian communities, as well as military bases, with more than 38.3 million people expected to participate. It is meant to raise crime- and drug-prevention awareness, boost local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, and let criminals know neighborhoods are fighting back.
