Post Date:07/31/2018 2:37 PM

Leesburg, VA (July 31, 2018) – National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes partnerships to make our communities safer. The Leesburg Police Department will celebrate National Night Out with two Leesburg neighborhoods on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. All Leesburg residents are encouraged to spend the evening outside and get to know their neighbors.

“This event allows us to continue our mission of fostering public relations, partnerships, and trust.  Together we can continue making this community a great place to live, work, visit, and raise a family.  We look forward to working with our community and achieving another successful year.” said Leesburg Police Chief Gregory Brown.

The main site for this year’s National Night Out in Leesburg will be the Fields of Leesburg community on Plaza Street NE. Hosted by the Leesburg Police Department, the evening’s activities will include a moon bounce, a variety of refreshments, and door prizes provided by event sponsors. The Leesburg Police Department will have the Mobile Command Center, police cars, and police motorcycles on display.  Children are invited to meet Leesburg K-9 Officer Sally and McGruff the Crime Dog who will be handing out Junior Officer Badges and to ride the Leesburg Police Barrel Train. The Leesburg Parks & Recreation Department will be on hand with an inflatable obstacle course and a Start Smart Tennis program, assisted by volunteers from the Town’s R.O.C.K. (Recreation Outreach to Community Kids) program.  Other organizations supporting the program include Leesburg Fire/Rescue Squad, Lodge 69 Fraternal Order of Police, and the Loudoun Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney.

In addition, Loudoun Hunger Relief will be distributing non-perishable food and information about their programs.

A satellite location will run simultaneously at the Sycamore Hill community, hosted by the Sycamore Hills Homeowners Association.

Sponsors for Leesburg’s National Night Out include Target, Wegmans, ChickFilA, Cobb Theaters, Giant, and 7-11. National Night Out is a program of the National Association of Town Watch (www.natw.org).
