Alexandria Celebrates National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 4, from 5:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M., City officials will partner with Alexandria Police to celebrate National Night Out.  The special celebration is part of a nationwide crime and drug prevention effort sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW).

To heighten awareness of crime prevention, residents in more than 25 Alexandria neighborhoods will turn on their porch lights, host neighborhood cook-outs and sponsor block parties in support of National Night Out.  Mayor William D. Euille, members of City Council and Acting Chief of Police Earl Cook will reaffirm the City’s commitment to fighting crime by visiting residents throughout the City.  Acting Chief Cook will be attending the National Night Out events at various locations throughout the City.

McGruff the Crime Fighting Dog, the K-9 Unit, Bike Patrol Unit and Motor Unit will tour neighborhoods and offer special demonstrations. 

“National Night Out is an opportunity to celebrate the neighborhood spirit and strengthen our relationship with the community,” says Acting Chief Cook.  “Our residents continue to support our department in reducing serious crime and in keeping Alexandria a safe place to live.  National Night Out provides us with the opportunity to thank residents for their vigilance and their dedication to the City.”
