National Night Out is a designated evening when communities across America come together to take a stand against crime, drugs and disorder in their neighborhoods. This year's event was held on Tuesday, August 4th. National Night Out (NNO) and the Glendale Police Department partnered with members of the community to affirm our conviction against crime and disorder.
Once upon a time, we kept our porch lights on. We opened the door even if we didn’t know who rang the bell. And we could always leave the back door unlocked during the day.
