National Night Out is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and have a heightened sense of awareness.
Mayor Brian Stack and the Board of Commissioners invite all residents to come out and enjoy the festivities. Admission to the event is free and everyone is invited.
