Viewfinder: A Night for Safety

Hundreds of residents show for a Night Out at Lilburn City Park on Tuesday.

Hundreds of Lilburn residents came out to meet their local law enforcement, rescue and city government employees during the National Night Out event at Lilburn City Park on Tuesday.

The national event was introduced in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), a nonprofit crime prevention organization that works with thousands of crime watch groups and law enforcement agencies. Last year, more than 37 million people participated, representing over 15,000 communities across the U.S.

Communities, including Lilburn, celebrated the event across the metro Atlanta area. Lilburn's festivities included a demonstration by police K-9 handlers, music, food, face painting, and other children's activities. Representatives from different city agencies were also on hand to answer questions for the public.
