Law enforcement agencies plan National Night Out events

A nonprofit is celebrating its 40th anniversary of community building and accessibility to law enforcement through National Night Out events this year.

According to the National Night Out website, the nonprofit started its first National Night Out campaign in 1984 to “promote police and community partnerships and camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.”

Through parties, festivals, cookouts, safety demonstrations, seminars, youth engagement, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and events, law enforcement and safety officials say they hope to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
