National Night out against Crime at the Jackson County Fairgrounds

National Night out against Crime began in 1984 as a campaign focused on bringing communities and law enforcement together.

Tomorrow the 19th Circuit Court District Attorney’s Office, in collaboration with Jackson County law enforcement agencies, will join other communities nationwide in participating in a National Night Out against Crime event.

On the agenda is whole lot of fun, free food, games, and activities the whole family can enjoy.

More importantly through, District Attorney Angel Myers McIlrath says the night will give attendees a chance to get to know the individuals behind the badge. “When you think of the D.A. or the prosecutors or law enforcement, you think of their job. This is an opportunity to see the people who do it. The people who say I want to serve and protect, but we’re the same people at church, at Walmart, at the gas station, dropping kids off and cheering for kids at the ball games. We’re just like anybody else. We care about this community. We’re invested in this community and we want to get to know you.”

National Night out against Crime kicks off at the Jackson County Fairgrounds outdoor covered pavilion August 3rd at 4:30 p.m. The event lasts until 6:30 p.m.
