ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

As many police departments around the country struggle to maintain good community relations, this year's National Night Out may be more important than ever.

Law enforcement agencies in Albany are teaming up with the Dougherty County School System for a night out event on Monday.

Kids can get back to school supplies, eat some good food and get prizes such as bikes and laptops. They'll also spend quality time with law enforcers.

"This night out in many ways means more than your typical night out, just because the tensions are so high in this country, and this is a way for communities and police to come together in a way that is meaningful and will build relationships," said DCSS Spokesman J.D. Sumner.

 The event will be held at Radium Springs Middle School from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday.
