Yes, police officers and deputies wear the badge, carry the weapons, and have sworn to enforce the law and protect the citizenry.

But they depend on law-abiding citizens to help them catch bad guys.

In an annual effort to raise awareness of crime and build teamwork between locals and law enforcement, our cities have scheduled National Night Out.

This year’s event will commemorate the 35th Anniversary of National Night Out across America.
