Neighborhoods in Salisbury are encouraged to host a National Night Out celebration, Tuesday, Aug. 7, with music, food, children’s games and other outdoor activities.
Founded in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch, National Night Out is an annual campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and builds neighborhood camaraderie. The nighttime event, typically held the first Tuesday in August, also increases awareness of local law enforcement programs such as neighborhood watch and anti-crime initiatives.
Salisbury neighborhoods, in conjunction with Parks and Recreation and SPD, are expected to welcome residents at various apartment complexes, the Fred Evans pool, churches, the Women’s Club, City Park and the Salvation Army.
National Night Out participants who are planning evening activities are encouraged to post photographs on social media platforms using the hashtag #SalisburyNightOut.
