Tuesday night marks the 39th annual National Night Out, and there will be events across D.C. Maryland and Virginia.
National Night Out aims for the police and the community to come together to try to build bridges. According to the National Night Out website, “it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.”
See a list of community events around the D.C. below.
Each police district in the nation’s capital will host an event.
“On National Night Out, we come together and recognize that across all eight wards, we share a common goal — to build a safer, stronger D.C.,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said in a statement. “This is an opportunity to get know your neighbors, to connect with representatives from D.C. Government, and to meet the officers who patrol our neighborhoods.”
