NORTH FULTON, Ga.  Police cars, fire trucks and K-9s, oh my! It must be the 31st annual National Night Out, NNO.

Local public safety departments will be holding events from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 5 in various locations.

The events will include food, K-9 demonstrations and public safety vehicles and equipment for people to explore.

National Association of Town Watch, NATW, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of various crime prevention programs, like National Night Out.

“America’s Night Out Against Crime,” National Night Out began in 1984 to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.

During that first year, 23 states and 400 communities took part.

Now the event involves 16,124 communities from all 50 states.
