On Aug. 4, communities across the country will join in observing National Night Out an annual event to bring people together in an effort to fight crime and drug abuse and support law enforcement. These remarkable community efforts show us that, together, we can all take a stand against crime in our neighborhoods.
From the recent bank robberies to the tragic instances of gang violence that have plagued our community, crime and violence has put our families at risk. Participating in National Night Out makes a strong statement that we dont have to tolerate crime and we greatly appreciate the brave work our law enforcement officers do every day. Together, we can continue fighting to ensure that our community and families are safe and have every opportunity to thrive.
