This Tuesday is “National Night Out” in your local community.
“National Night Out” is an annual event, now in its 31st year, co-sponsored by police departments across the country to promote close, friendly neighborhoods – the better to prevent drug abuse and crime.
From 6-8 pm, you’re invited to turn on your outside lights, lock your doors, and spend the evening outside with your neighbors. Many neighborhoods in the area are hosting special events, and police officers will be there to meet with residents as well.
In Hillsborough, National Night Out is another example of the town’s commitment to its close-knit, small-town character. Mayor Tom Stevens joined WCHL’s Aaron Keck on the Monday afternoon news to discuss both National Night Out and the town’s efforts in general to preserve its character in the face of development and growth.
