National Night Out, an annual event that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, is coming to northern Marion County cities the evening of Aug. 1.
On National Night Out, neighborhoods host block parties and can choose to be visited by members of local law enforcement agencies. Often, the law enforcement agencies give presentations at the block parties that explain crime prevention techniques and allow community members to ask questions, discuss concerns and get to know the officers.
Registration will be open for Woodburn block parties until July 28. Registration forms can be downloaded at the city's website or picked up at the police department located at 1060 Mount Hood Ave.
