Tuesday, Aug. 2 is National Night Out, the annual neighborhood-based crime and drug prevention event.
It’s an opportunity to show neighborhood spirit and strengthen partnerships with local police.
Fairfax County Police will be out in Reston neighborhoods, meeting citizens as part of the effort. They encourage residents to turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside together to get to know one another and talk about common concerns between 6 and 9 p.m.
Reston Community Center will have a kickoff event from noon to 2 p.m. on the plaza in front of the Hunter Woods location.
Over in Herndon, Herndon Police have lots of activities planned too. There are gatherings planned in about 15 neighborhoods, as well as at Haley Smith Park. See this list on Herndon Police’s Facebook page.
