Albany -- Police are asking you to turn on your lights, meet with your neighbors, and sit on your front porch Tuesday night to fight crime. It's the 20th annual National Night Out.

From 7 to 9 PM Tuesday, you are asked to join Americans across the country in this national after dark crime prevention event.

 In Albany, the Police Department says you can play a vital role in fighting crime by taking part. Lt. Kenn Singleton of the Albany Police said "We want them to get out and get involved.This is a going away party for the criminal element. We want them to come out and enjoy some of the festivities that we've got, talk about some things we can do to better help, protect, and serve here in the city of Albany."

 The Albany Police and Neighborhood Watch will sponsor several National Night Out events. A barbecue will be hosted at the District One Community Police Center on Dawson Road from 5 to 8 PM Tuesday.

There will also be night out gatherings at the Day Care Center on Story Road,  at West Town Elementary School, the Carver Sports Complex , and the Albany Housing Authority at 600 West Society.

Police ask you to come out and demonstrate solidarity against crime.
