Bronx communities work with police during National Night Out

As part of the National Night Out (NNO), 14 Bronx communities are working alongside police officers to help raise crime and drug prevention awareness.

The 22nd annual National Night Out urges residents to lock their doors, turn on their lights and join police and neighbors as they work to make their streets safe. The event, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), says it wants to strengthen neighborhood watches and let criminals know that residents are organized and fighting back. Organizers of the event say crime prevention starts at the local level.

More than 34 million people participated in NNO in 2004.
