At least a dozen local neighborhood watch groups are set to participate in the National Association of Town Watch’s National Night Out. The events will take place the evening of Tuesday, August 3.

Local events include block parties, barbecues, and potlucks. Local police and firefighters will visit events that have been registered. It’s a chance to meet your neighbors and become involved in crime prevention efforts in your area.

National Night Out began in 1984 as a way to involve communities in crime prevention. Last year there were more than 35 million participants nationwide.
