Hillsborough police are inviting residents to come together on August 5 for the 31st annual “National Night Out.”

Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, National Night Out is designed to bring neighbors together – the better to prevent neighborhood crime. From 6-9 p.m., residents are invited to turn on their outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police officers.
