Hundreds Attend National Night Out in Norfolk

NORFOLK-  Last night was Norfolk’s third year participating in National Night Out. In the last two years about 400 people turned up for the local event, and with even more organizations and businesses taking part this year, Police Captain Leon Chapman expected the turn out to be just as good despite the heat. National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
