Tuesday is National Night Out across America.

The event was begun by law enforcement, neighborhood watch groups, and others

National Night Out was introduced in August of 1984 through an already established network of law enforcement agencies, neighborhood watch groups, civic groups, state and regional crime prevention associations, and volunteers across the nation. The first annual National Night Out involved 2.5 million neighbors across 400 communities in 23 states.

Auburn holds its celebration at the Equal Rights Heritage Center downtown. It will be the first National Night Out in Auburn since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Auburn City Clerk Chuck Mason tells us what’s on tap.

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
