The personnel will take time to visit, show off their equipment and answer questions.

National Night Out is an annual event designed to strengthen the community by encouraging neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and with their local law enforcement partners.

The goal is to heighten crime prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and most importantly, to send a message that the neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

It's also a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better.
