Neighborhoods Invited to Join Police for National Night Out

National Night Out 2022 Police Community Partnerships

On Aug. 2, James City County neighborhoods are invited to join forces with Police and thousands of communities nationwide for the Annual National Night Out.

National Night Out heightens crime and drug prevention awareness; generates support for local anti-crime efforts; strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and sends a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

During the evening, residents throughout the County are asked to lock their doors, turn on porch lights and spend the evening outdoors with neighbors and police. Many neighborhoods are already making plans for block parties, cookouts and visits from County Police and McGruff the Crime Dog.

To arrange for County Officers to attend your community event, contact Senior Police Officer Shenee Graham at 757-603-6025 or via email at shenee.graham@jamescitycountyva.gov or Master Officer Brandon Frantz at 757-603-6023 or via email at brandon.frantz@jamescitycountyva.gov by July 8.

For more information about National Night Out, visit the National Association of Town Watch at natw.org.
