Alexandria Celebrates National Night Out

On Tuesday, August 3, from 5:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M., City officials will partner with Alexandria Police to celebrate the 27th Annual 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 27 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, City Manager James K. Hartmann, members of City Council and Chief of Police Earl Cook will reaffirm the City’s commitment to fighting crime by visiting residents 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, a year-long community building campaign, is designed to:

  • Heighten crime prevention awareness;
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and law enforcement-community partnerships;
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

“National Night Out is an opportunity for the police department to strengthen our relationship with the community and thank the residents for their vigilance and their dedication to keeping Alexandria a safe place to live, work and visit,” says Chief Cook.
