Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick and Norma J. Torres introduced a resolution to recognize Aug. 3 as National Night Out. Every year on the first Tuesday of August, communities across the country and their local law enforcement agencies come together to promote public safety and build community-police partnerships.
“Strong community-police partnerships can unite us all and help our communities thrive by promoting public safety awareness,” Fitzpatrick said. “Throughout Bucks and Montgomery counties, I am proud of the many police departments that bring our neighborhoods together and foster a sense of community by organizing activities and participating in National Night Out.”
National Night Out started with neighbors turning on their porch lights and sitting outside their homes.
