‘A true sense of community’

Farmville celebrated National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday evening with block parties that brought citizens and law enforcement together. A Farmville Police Department (FPD) press release noted that NNO “enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug-prevention awareness, develop and strengthen partnerships between police and residents and generate support for anti-crime programs such as Neighborhood Watch, Crime Solvers and Business Watch.” In the photo above, citizens and law enforcement unite at the Parkview Gardens Apartments block party.
