On Tuesday, August 6th, neighbors came together all over Jacksonville to participate in the 36th Annual National Night Out.
The planned events are designed to strengthen neighborhoods, increase awareness about the importance of crime prevention and reporting, and reinforce positive police/neighborhood relationships.
Tuesday's events began earlier in the day at NAS Jacksonville and ended with an evening of activities ranging from neighbors leaving their porch lights on to show their solidarity in the fight against crime to ice cream socials and block parties.
JSO representatives stopped by many of the planned neighborhood events throughout the city to thank citizens for their partnership in the fight against crime.
This year marks the 33rd year that JSO and Jacksonville citizens participated in the event and the 36th year for the national intiative known as National Night Out.
The 2020 event is scheduled to take place Tuesday, August 4, 2020.
