WHUR In the Community For National Night Out In Waldorf

Tuesday, August 1, 2017 – Every year, WHUR joins forces with local police and communities in the DMV in an effort to help residents fight back against crime, violence, and drugs. It’s all part of the annual National Night Out campaign.  This year, we headed to Waldorf to take part in NNO with the hundreds of homeowners in the Sheffield community.  The evening was filled with games, food, lots of activities and fun for the entire family.  National Night Out is designed to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.  Taylor Thomas got a chance to talk with a few up the residents and officials in this diverse community.

Neighborhoods host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and various other community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and much, much more.
