National Night Out brings police and community together | Connecticut and area

For more than three decades, the National Night Out program has brought police departments and communities together to improve relationships through games, music, dance, crafts and other activities.

Now in its 38th year, several local towns will join thousands of municipalities across the country with similar events on Tuesday that aim to showcase police in a peaceful atmosphere.
