Nebraskans take Night Out against crime

From Omaha to Scottsbluff and dozens of communities in between, thousands of Nebraskans will take part in tonight’s “National Night Out.”

Residents are being asked to turn on their porch lights and get outside to enjoy their neighborhoods — and their neighbors.

The National Night Out was designed with several goals in mind: to heighten crime prevention awareness and generate support for local anti-crime programs, to strengthen community spirit and police-neighborhood cooperation; and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are uniting.

Activities range from cookouts and block parties to ice cream socials and concerts.
