On Tuesday, August 7,  citizens throughout the Front Royal area are invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “35th Annual National Night Out” (NNO) crime and drug prevention event.

National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and co-sponsored locally by the Front Royal Police Department, will involve over 16,500 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 38.5 million people are expected to participate in National Night Out.

National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for–and participation in–local anti-crime efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

From 6 to 9 p.m. on August 7th, local businesses, organizations as well as law enforcement officers from various agencies working the Front Royal/Warren County area will be on hand to greet citizens at the Gazebo on E. Main Street.  There will be exhibits and demonstrations centered on safety awareness, crime and drug prevention along with activities, entertainment and refreshments.

Attendees will be able to meet the Front Royal Police Department’s newest K-9 officer, Bosco and see a 7:30 p.m. demonstration with his partner, Master Police Officer, Tony Clingerman.  Souled Out, a well-known regional band, will perform as well.

Lord Fairfax Community College in Middletown  is also hosting a National Night Out event on Tuesday from 6-9 p.m. along with Middletown and Stephens City police departments.

LFCC Police Lt. Chris Adams said, “There are going to be K-9 demonstrations with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia State Police at the Middletown Campus.”

There will also be displays by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles Carrier Services, Stephens City Fire and Rescue Co., and Middletown Volunteer Fire and Rescue Co.
