Alexandria Celebrates 34th Annual National Night Out
For Immediate Release: July 24, 2017
On Tuesday, August 1, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., the Alexandria Police Department and other City of Alexandria agencies will partner to celebrate the 34th Annual National Night Out. The special celebration is part of a nationwide crime and drug prevention effort sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW).
To heighten awareness of crime prevention, residents in more than 30 Alexandria neighborhoods will turn on their porch lights, host neighborhood cookouts and sponsor block parties in support of National Night Out. Members of City Council, City Manager Mark Jinks, Police Chief Michael Brown, and other officials will reaffirm the City’s commitment to fighting crime by visiting residents throughout Alexandria.
The Alexandria Police Department’s K-9 Unit, Motor Unit, Bike Patrol, Command Bus, Armored Personnel Carrier, and Crime Scene Mobile Lab will tour neighborhoods and offer special demonstrations.
National Night Out, a year-round community campaign, is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness; generate support for and participation in local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and law enforcement community partnerships; and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
