Maybe your neighborhood participates in National Night Out, an annual event that falls on the first Tuesday in August. This community-building campaign promotes partnerships between police and community members. It’s also a chance to bolster neighborhood camaraderie, so make sure you have your lawn chairs and cooler ready come August 2.
