State Representative Michael McAuliffe joined with members of the district on August 2nd to celebrate National Night Out. National Night Out is an event which brings communities together to promote camaraderie between neighbors and with the police that protect us. It is an effort to foster relationships that will make us safer and our communities better. National Night Out has been held annually since 1984 on the first Tuesday in August. The event is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention, neighborhood watch ,and other anticrime efforts.
