National Night Out is Tuesday October 2ND!
What is National Night Out?
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
In other words, it’s a night to get together with your neighbors and take a stand for your neighborhood. A stand against crime, a stand for your community. It’s a block party with a cause!
Join up with the block party closest to you!
Or, come join the 5000 Block of Parker at Brannon. They will be out from 6p-10p. All are welcome!
