National Night Out is Aug. 7 at Signal Hill Park

Manassas Park Police and residents will take a stand together against crime.

National Night Out is Aug. 7 at Signal Hill Park

Some 640 hamburgers, 600 hot dogs, 495 hot dogs, 675 slices of pizza and 25 watermelons were served to the masses onby Manassas Park Police.

And they are ready to do it all again this year.

This year's event will be held at Signal Hill Park on Aug. 7, Manassas Park Police announced this week.

One of the main purposes of National Night Out, which is held the first Tuesday of every August, is to send a message to criminals that the community stands with police to combat crime. 

"The importance of this effort cannot be overstated, as it allows law enforcement agencies to promote community unity and partnership in fighting crime together," Manassas Park Police Community Resource Officer William "Quiz" Quesenberry said in an earlier report. "National Night Out allows us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the community and openly express a united front against crime within our community."

National Night Out is also the chance for neighbors to get together and meet each other. 

Other communities in the nation elect to host flashlight walks around their neighborhoods or throw block parties in support of National Night Out. It is also tradition for neighbors to leave their porch lights on.
