City of Williamsburg residents are invited to attend the 2023 National Night Out event on Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2023, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Community Building, 401 N. Boundary St.
National Night Out (NNO) is an annual event that promotes police-community partnerships, public engagement, and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods a safer, better place to live.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and inclement weather, this event is the first in-person NNO celebration since 2019.
NNO provides an opportunity for residents to meet members of several local law enforcement agencies, including the Williamsburg Police Department, Williamsburg-James City County Sheriff’s Office, and the Virginia State Police.
“National Night Out is a fantastic opportunity for local law enforcement officers to strengthen our relationship with residents,” Community Engagement Officer Herb Williams said. “It’s been four years since we’ve been able to host National Night Out due to circumstances beyond our control, so we are very eager to welcome everyone back to one of our favorite events.”
