On Tuesday, August 5, the Tewksbury Police Department will be joining forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the “31th Annual National Night Out” crime and drug prevention event. National Night Out, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch will involve over 15,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases around the world. In all, over 37 million people are expected to participate in “America’s Night Out Against Crime”.  

One of the goals of NNO is to strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
