It’s the 35th anniversary of National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August (Texas celebrates on the first Tuesday in October). Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
City of Franklin announced there will be 11 neighborhoods taking part in National Night Out. Local law enforcement will visit neighborhoods on Tuesday, August 7 from 6 p – 8 p.
The following neighborhoods will take part in the event: Villages at Morningside, Fieldstone Farms, McKays Mill, Westhaven, Berry Farms, Franklin Housing Authority, Hunters Chase, Hurstbourne, Carronbridge, Creekstone, and Franklin Estates.
