On Tuesday, Aug. 5, neighborhoods throughout Newport and Toledo are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 31st annual National Night Out crime prevention event.
National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Newport and Toledo police departments, will involve more than 15,000 communities from all 50 states.
National Night Out is designed to: 1) heighten crime, drug and violence prevention awareness; 2) generate support for, and participation in local anti-crime programs; 3) strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and 4) send a message to criminals letting them know the neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
