43rd Precinct celebrates annual National Night Out event on Randall Avenue

Police precincts across the city tonight took part in the annual National Night Out event.



Local residents got a chance to get to know their police officers, and have some fun at the 43rd Precinct Night Out on Randall Avenue.



The road was blocked off for the event so that the community could enjoy the music, food and fun with the police units who put it all together.



Parents who attended say they think it's important for children to come and have a great time with NYPD officers, especially after recent events have generated negativity toward officers in the area.



National Night Out is held the first Tuesday of every August across the country. Families say they are already looking forward to next year's event.
