All across South Florida on Tuesday, our local police departments will host their annual "National Night Out."
It's an event which invites you at home to go out and meet your law enforcement officers with the aim of bridging the gap and encouraging safety starting at home
For more than 30 years police departments across the country have been putting on "National Night Out" events.
From Miami-Dade to Broward County, last year many coming out in record numbers and departments will again host "National Night Out" against crime Tuesday.
The goal is for neighbors to meet, learn crime prevention tips and to promote neighborhood unity
After last year's event, members in the community said to us that they think its important to shed a positive light on law enforcement
"I think it's very good its actually a positive thing and it shows a positive light in law enforcement, some of the good things they do and they had some good demonstrations," says Ken Mills, attended event last year.
Miami-Dade Police will be set-up at different parks and schools in each district across the county
Events will begin as early as five and last until nine.
