National night out returns to Atlanta

The "28th Annual National Night Out" is Tuesday, August 2, 2011.

Last year's National Night Out campaign involved citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from over 15,000 communities from all 50 states. Over 37 million people participated in National Night Out 2010.

The goal is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Many Metro Atlanta communities are participating.  You can view our interactive map to find one near you (if you would lke your community event added to the calendar, e-mail jwolfe@11alive.com).
