The annual National Night Out is a time when neighbors show their support to local crime prevention programs and build neighborhood spirit.
Some neighborhood watch groups will be hosting bar-b-q's, potlucks, and ice cream parties.
Representatives from different law enforcement agencies will also attend National Night Out parties in their areas, as a way to strengthen relationships between law enforcement and community members.
