Neighbors Unite For National Night Out

For nearly a quarter of a century, one day a year is dedicated to strengthening the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement.

National Night Out looks to discuss potential concerns before they become a problem. Forming neighborhood watches and other initiatives are looked at, but it's about forming a connection with surrounding neighbors and police as well.

About 1,500 attended events throughout Grand Junction last year and authorities say each brings more people together, making for safer communities throughout the Grand Valley.
