HOMERVILLE, GA (WALB) –Law enforcers in South Georgia are gearing for a crime and drug prevention event.

Police in the small town of Homerville will take part in National Night Out Tuesday to build better relations with the people they protect.

They'll have k-9 demonstrations, gospel singers, I.D. kits for children and a flashlight walk at Pearidge Park Tuesday night.

They'll also give away a bike and soccer balls.

Police want more people to report crimes and take back their neighborhoods.

"If they continue to turn their head to criminal activity, it's only going to get worse it's not going to get any better and we have to have the support of the community," said Homerville Chief Wesley Walker.

Homerville's National Night Out events starts at 6:30 Tuesday night.
