NEW YORK — The NYPD will partake in National Night Out events throughout the five boroughs on Tuesday, August 6.

The annual community-building event will be held at more than 70 citywide locations in an effort to strengthen the relationship between the community and law enforcement.

Join city officials, local businesses and neighbors to enjoy some yummy barbecue and other food, bounce houses, games, face painting and more.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who recently held a "Stop the Violence" vigil, discusses the recent mass shootings, nationwide events and the judge's recommendation of Daniel Pantaleo in the 2014 chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Learn about ways to keep your community safer and meet leaders and personnel from your local precinct, plus meet and interact with neighbors, community members and local businesses, with a common goal of partnership and safety.
