Local efforts honored by National Night Out


WALLA WALLA — For the sixth consecutive year, the Walla Walla Police Department and Walla Walla Area Crime Watch have been named as award winners by National Night Out.

National Night Out takes place the first Tuesday of August and involves neighbors, emergency service providers and other community members and stakeholders. The participants work together to inform and generate support for crime- and drug-prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back, according to the National Night Out website.

Along with being selected as a winner for outstanding participation for the sixth year, the city also placed 20th nationwide among communities with populations between 15,000-50,000.
