ATLANTA, GA — National Night Out is a yearly community-building campaign that promotes police-community and neighborhood partnerships to make neighborhoods a safer and better place to live. This year, National Night out will be held on August 3.
The campaign aims to strengthen the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while promoting a true sense of community. It also provides an excellent opportunity to bring residents and police together under favorable circumstances.
Millions of residents from across thousands of communities from all fifty states in the U.S territories and military bases will also take part.
On the first Tuesday in August, neighborhoods will host festivals, block parties, parades, cookouts and other community events. With safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much more.
"The best way to build a safer community is to know your neighbors and your surroundings, National Night Out triumphs over a culture that isolates us from each other and allows us to rediscover our own community." said Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.
The Cobb County Police Department, along with the Cobb County Sheriff's Office, Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services, Cobb County 911 and Cobb County Emergency Management Agency, encourage people in the area to spend a fun-filled evening and getting to know each other in a relaxed and celebratory environment.
National Association of Town Watch has prepared a free parking space for Atlanta residents for the night out at Jim Miller Park.
It should be noted that participating communities or events are required to register.
