Mayor Lori Lightfoot will stop by Moore Park in Austin to celebrate the 36th annual National Night Out in Chicago.

With community events hosted in every police district in the city, officers, residents, neighborhood-based organizations and local leaders will come together as part of the nationwide event to help build relationships and promote partnerships in an effort to make communities safer.

National Night Out was introduced in 1984 in an effort to increase community participation in crime prevention initiatives, and send a message to criminals that drugs and violence will not be tolerated in communities.
