National Night Out Against Crime events
Law enforcement departments all across the country will come together with the community for an annual Night Out Against Crime event on Tuesday.
It is an annual event that is aimed at getting the community involved in various conversations with law enforcement officers. The goal is to foster relationships between police and community members and talk about how to make neighborhoods safer.
This is also a chance for residents to speak up about any concerns they may have.
