The City of Midland recently held their 'National Night Out' and posted a few of the night's events.

The 'National Night Out' began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

National Night Out now involves over 37.8 million people and 16,124 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.

Dignitaries attending this year's NNO in Midland included Senator John Cornyn and Midland Mayor Jerry Morales.

Mark your calendars to participate in next year's National Night Out!
