National Night Out: West U Residents Get to Know Neighbors, Police
West U residents turned on their porch lights and got to know their neighbors and police officers during the 28th annual “National Night Out” on Tuesday.
National Night Out is an event for residents and law enforcement to partner up against crime.
The city had 16 block parties register for last night’s event. West U police officers met with residents and answered questions about crime.
Cookouts, block parties and neighborhood walks occurred simultaneously throughout the city and nationwide.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support and participation in crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community relations and send a message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
