Neighborhoods throughout Winston-Salem are invited to join with thousands of communities nationwide on Tuesday, Aug. 6, for the 30th Annual National Night Out for crime and drug prevention. From 6 to 9 p.m., residents in neighborhoods throughout Winston-Salem and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.
National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, and Target, and is locally co-sponsored by the Winston-Salem Police Department, will involve more than 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities, and military bases around the world.
