National Night Out hits Chatham County today
In a nation-wide effort to promote community partnerships to dispel crime, law enforcement agencies in Chatham County will host their annual National Night Out events Tuesday evening.
The programs are designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, garner support for anti-crime programs, strengthen spirit within neighborhoods and send a message to criminals that the community is fighting back.
Among the events will be block parties, cookouts, visits with local law enforcement and community leaders, contests and youth programs.
National Night Out has proven to be an effective and enjoyable program to promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships in our fight for a safer community, said Gena Sullivan, Savannah-Chatham police spokeswoman.
