ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department is reaching out to the community tonight to help make our city a safer place, with their 30th annual National Night Out.

They'll have their crime prevention unit and booths set up at the Civic Center to inform everyone who attends with safety tips.

"We also will be promoting neighborhood watches," said Detective Schemika Foster, APD. "We'll have our crime prevention unit will be out here speaking of different ways of how to get your neighborhood watch groups started if you have not."

Information will be provided on security systems, locks and ways to keep your family from becoming victims of crime in your home.

"So that everyone can still come out, get the information, get the details that we're talking about, because want to emphasize crime prevention within our city," said Detective Foster. "We want our community to be as safe as possible for those that live within it."

APD will also be handing out school supplies for any student in need this year, first come first serve.

The event is held each year to make stronger police-community partnerships, to lessen the crime that happens.

National Night Out is open to the public tonight at 6pm in the Albany Civic Center.
