ALPHARETTA, Ga. The cities of Milton and Alpharetta gave residents a chance to come out and have fun with their public safety departments police, fire and EMS crews Aug. 6 at Wills Park for National Night Out.

Fire trucks opened their doors for people to sit in, police officers gave K-9 and SWAT demonstrations and emergency crews showed off their safety gear. SWAT trucks and fire safety vehicles were open to tours.

The National Night Out campaign started in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, establish community-police partnerships and to instill neighborhood camaraderie.

The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and most importantly, send a message that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
