“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 communities,” praised Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.

“A chance to bring neighborhoods together with the men and women who protect them. The safety of our communities depend on both law enforcement and the neighbors they serve. National Night Out enhances that cooperation,” said former Vice-President Joe Biden concerning the event.

Make plans to unite with your neighbors and show your support for your local, county and state law enforcement agencies.
