On Tuesday, August 3, 2010, communities nationwide will be celebrating the “27th Annual National Night Out.”  The goal is to (1) heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, (2) generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, (3) strengthen neighborhood and police community partnerships, and (4) send a message to the criminals that neighborhoods and the police are united in fighting crime.

Some of the neighborhoods participating in Virginia Beach are:

1st Precinct – Lotus Creek, Ocean Lakes, Red Mill Farm, Shire Village (Buckner Farm), South Shore Estates, Southgate, and Villages at West Neck.

2nd Precinct – Atlantis Apartments, Baycliff, Croatan, Rudee Heights, Seabridge Square, Southall Quarter, Waldon by the Chesapeake, and Wolfsnare Plantation.

3rd Precinct – Bishops Gate, Chesapeake Beach, Cypress Point, Diamond Springs/Gardenwood Park, L&J Gardens, Lake Shores, Little Creek, Summerset Lake Condos, and Thoroughgood Colony.

4th Precinct – Bellamy Plantation, Commons at Princess Anne, Driftide Condos, Fairfield Forest, Framingham Village (College Park), Green Run, Kempsville Lake, Liberty Ridge Townhomes, Salem Woods, and Tivoli Apartments.

Most events begin around 6:30 p.m.

Even if your neighborhood is not having a planned event, we encourage all of the citizens of Virginia Beach to get out and send the message that we are fighting back against crime and drugs.  Leave your porch lights on all night to show your support!
