“America’s Night Out Against Crime”
“Annually, residents in neighborhoods throughout Chesterfield County and across the nation, lock their doors, turn on the outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.
Many neighborhoods throughout Chesterfield will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, cookouts, parades, flashlight walks, contests, and youth activities where there will be visits by the police and other first responders.
National Night Out is designed to
- Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts;
- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police‐community partnerships; and
- Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.”
