National Night Out, a year-long community building campaign, is designed to: (1) Heighten crime prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
This year, Walmart Supercenter, Dunwoody will be providing free refreshments outside in their parking lot between 6PM-8PM. The Dunwoody Police will also have special equipment on display including a patrol car, Segway and SWAT vehicle. DeKalb County Fire along with over 15 local businesses and special interest groups will be on hand with booths.
