Triad-- Law enforcement agencies across the Triad and the nation are gearing up for National Night Out.
National Night Out is an annual event held every August.
The goal of the events is for Communities to learn more about crime/drugs and build relationships with police. It is also the hope of participants to send a strong message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
National Night Out events are designed around neighborhoods to host outside block parties, cookouts or something so they get get to know each other better. Neighborhoods are encouraged to turn on porch lights for the night.
The event this year is on Tuesday, August 7.
