Police And Community Groups Show Unity
O'BRYONVILLE (WKRC-TV)- People all across the Tri-State celebrated one of the largest crime-prevention events in the country.
Thousands turned out Tuesday night for National Night Out.
Community members work side-by-side with police to highlight crime prevention and safety.
The event encourages communities to come together for good times and send a message to criminals that crime will not be tolerated.
"What comes together is a group of citizens and community that come together for a large party," said O'Bryonville Development Director, Michael Hauck. "It's a great opportunity to bring people together to talk, collaborate, to meet to the police officers, to have relationships with police officers, really the best possible time, when you're not on the business side of a transaction."
Hauck also went to talk about how the majority of the time when you hear about police, it's in unfavorable conduct.
"This is an atmosphere where it's a positive. Where kids and parents can come and see policemen in a friendly atmosphere. Ask the most obscure questions and get the most obscure answers. It's about building relationships, partnerships and showing together, we can make a difference in the community."
The party continued across the river in Kentucky.
The Marines opened Tuesday night's ceremony at the Target in Newport.
