COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - The City of Colonial Heights is gearing up for its version of National Night Out. The event is called Celebrate Safe Communities Night.

For the second year in a row you have a chance to meet the men and women that protect your neighborhood, and meet your neighbors to help keep your community safe.

Tuesday, like celebrations earlier this year at National Night Out, Colonial Heights will have their own version of the popular event. It's your chance to take a stand against crime, and get more involved in keeping your community safe.

NBC12 was in Colonial Heights last year when the city launched Safe Communities Night.  It's a chance for you to get together with those in your community, along with the police officers who keep a close eye on where you live.

You'll also be able to talk to the people who you've elected to represent you.  You can tell all these people about any worries you have about crime, right where you live. The Safe Communities Night starts at 6pm Tuesday evening and runs until 9pm.

There are a lot of different events going on in each neighborhood. If you do not know if an event is going on near you, the best bet is to ask your neighbors to see if an event is organized.
