‘We are doing the work:’ Thousands of Brooklynites, cops come together for National Night Out


Brooklynites took to the streets Tuesday for this year’s “National Night Out Against Crime,” with more than a dozen community-building events hosted by the borough’s police precincts.

Established in the 1980’s, National Night Out takes place on the first Tuesday of every August, and aims to strengthen police-community relations and educate locals about crime and its prevention.
