National Night Out is always held on the first Tuesday in August; which is the 6th this year. It is an event to promote police-community partnerships. One of the best ways to get to know those in your community is to get out there and meet your neighbors. These community events allow citizens to get to know their officers who patrol their neighborhoods and learn about other services available to them. Below you will find some of the events happening around the city for National Night Out 2019.
