Indianapolis Observing National Nite Out

Localities across Indiana are taking part in National Nite Out Tuesday. 

America's Night Out Against Crime aims to heighten awareness and boost community participation in anti-crime efforts and overall public safety.  37 million people in more than 15-thousand communities in all 50 states took part in events last year. 

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard says National Nite Out is ultimately a community effort and a way to get people to engage with police.  IMPD Chief Rick Hite says it's an opportunity for police to thank residents and build bridges in the community.  Indianapolis Public Safety Director Troy Riggs says National Nite Out is also the city's way to give residents information about groups and organizations that provide important services.
