ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The 26th Annual National Night Out is tonight, and the Albany Police are holding celebrations across the city, asking you to help them fight crime and take back your neighborhood.
At the APD's Central District Office in the 1300 block of Newton Road, Albany Police Officers are setting up what they call a going away party for crime and drugs.
The National Night Out activities will have food, games and fun for the kids and family, and Police are asking everyone to come join them and make a statement about fighting crime in your community.
"It's an opportunity for the police and the community to bridge together. Come together, and work on solutionis in combating crime in the neighborhoods," said Albany Police spokeswoman Phyllis Banks Whitley.
Police want you to turn your front porch lights on and come to one of their National Night Out Celebrations, and get to know the Police Officers and their crime fighting efforts, and how you can help.
The Activities here at the Central District on Newton Road start at 7:00 and continue until 9:00. There are also hosting celebrations at the West District on Dawson Road and on the East side at the Thornton Gym on Thornton Drive. If you are interested in crime in your community, you are invited to come out and join in the fight.
The Dougherty County Police, Sheriff's Office, and School Police are hosting a National Night Out event now at the Radium Middle School, where they are giving out school supplies for people in need.
