This August 7th, several communities managed by Leland Management will be participating in, “National Night Out”. National Night Out is a nationwide event that focuses on heightening crime and drug prevention awareness; generating support for, and participation in local anti-crime programs; strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and sending a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Community associations, towns and cities will celebrate this event in their own unique way. Typically the celebration will include the traditional display of outdoor lights and front porch vigils as well as block parties, cookouts, visits from local police and sheriff departments, parades, exhibits, flashlight walks, contests, and youth programs.
