SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Over a dozen locations around Sioux Falls will participate in the annual National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2022.

Neighborhoods across the nation will lock their doors, turn on their outside lights and spend the evening outside with their neighbors. This year we have several neighborhoods hosting block parties and cookouts. The Sioux Falls Police Department, Sioux Falls Fire/Rescue, and other city departments will also attend, according to a press release.

National Night Out has proven to be an effective and enjoyable event that promotes neighborhood spirit as well as positive police and community partnerships. The benefits that Sioux Falls will receive and have received from National Night Out extend well beyond this night.

The benefits of National Night Out include

· Heightens crime and drug prevention awareness

· Generates support for local anti-crime programs along with participation

· Alerts offenders that neighborhoods are aware of suspicious activity and criminal behavior in their areas
