MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Tuesday is National Night Out, an annual event to build relationships between communities and their local police departments to make neighborhoods safer.
Many of Montgomery’s neighborhoods will be taking part with neighbors locking their doors, turning on their front porch lights and spending the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, organizers are asking for communities to modify the evening by celebrating it a little differently than in years past. Many are instead hosting “drive thru” events where citizens drive thru to get a freshly grilled hot dog or hamburger all bagged and ready to go.
Neighborhood Services (NSD), a department of the City of Montgomery has reminded those hosting events to practice the safety standards in place for stopping the spread of COVID-19.
For more information, please contact Neighborhood Services at 334-625-2175 or visit natw.org.
