National Night Out returns to bring neighborhoods together

DIEDRA LAIRD - dlaird@charlotteo

There is a formal program for bringing neighbors together and fighting crime in your community. It’s called National Night Out, and it happens across the country on Aug. 4.

In Charlotte, there are plenty of opportunities to participate. Programs focus on building neighborhood spirit and sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized.

Register your community for a future National Night Out program here, through the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.
