National Night Out Kicks Off with Day Event Saturday

National Night Out Kickoff

Noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 31

Target store, 7107 Forest Hill Ave.

Richmond Police and Target invite the public to attend a free crime prevention festival as a prelude to Tuesday, Aug. 3, the official National Night Out.

Richmond Police will provide crime prevention information, giveaways and fingerprint identification kits for children accompanied by a parent.

Target will provide food, fun and a family-friendly atmosphere.

This year marks the 27th annual celebration of National Night Out, when communities across the country come together to give crime a going-away party.

In addition, citizens and neighborhood groups may still register their National Night Out event for National Town Watch recognition by contacting the Richmond Police Community Care Unit at 646-4395.
