WILLIAMSBURG — The City of Williamsburg announced this week it will host its first in-person National Night Out since 2019, inviting residents to take part in the annual event promoting police-community partnerships, public engagement, and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods a safer, better place to live.
“National Night Out is a fantastic opportunity for our local law enforcement officers to build relationships with our residents,” Community Engagement Officer Herb Williams said. “This event is great expression of our commitment to community policing, and we are eager to host the community once again for one of our favorite annual events.”
The 2022 National Night Out event will be held Tuesday, Oct. 4, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at High Street, 1430 Richmond Road.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 was live streamed and in 2021, the city canceled the event.
National Night Out is an opportunity for residents to meet members of local law enforcement agencies, including the Williamsburg Police Department, Williamsburg-James City County Sheriff’s Office, William & Mary Police, Colonial Williamsburg Public Safety, National Park Service, and the Virginia State Police.
