Communities take stand against crime with 'Night Out'

Communities will band together on Tuesday night to take a stand against crime.

Tuesday marks the National Night Out Against Crime event in New Orleans to raise crime prevention awareness, reduce crime and increase the support of local, state and federal law enforcement.

Crime Stoppers of Greater New Orleans will host the night of food, music and activities for the kids. It's also a chance to meet groups tasked with keeping the community safe. Members of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, the New Orleans Fire Department, DEA and US Marshals will be on hand to meet residents and answer questions.

In Orleans Parish, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Interim NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison and other city leaders will attend a night out against crime event of Federal city in Algiers.

“When people decide they want to come together as a community and then there's a good flow of information to and from the community to the police department, that's when we can work together to solve those crimes and then prevent them more in the future,” said Harrison.
