National Night Out, an annual day dedicated to trying to strengthen community-police partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie is this Tuesday, Aug. 2. The community building campaign aims to make neighborhoods safer and overall better places to live.
The national campaign, which has been celebrated for 33 years, believes the safety of a community depends on knowing your neighbors, surroundings and local law enforcement.
Midvale Park Neighborhood is hoping to take the opportunity to bring police and neighbors together with an event from 5 to 8 p.m. at Grijalva Park, 5775 S. Oaktree Drive.
Providing a fun filled night full of food, safety demos and community, the group has received support from tons of neighborhood organizations and businesses such as the Tucson Police Department, Pima Count Sheriffs Department and O.K. Corral.
Event organizers are asking anyone interested in volunteering at the event to reach out via Facebook.
