RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Hanover Sheriff’s Office is celebrating its annual National Night Out event with the community a little differently this year.

On Tuesday, Oct. 6, the department will host four mini parades in several Hanover neighborhoods. Residents are encouraged to turn on their lights, decorate their homes and put up signs.

The annual National Night Out encourages neighbors to engage with each other and local law enforcement. In 2019, the Hanover National Night Out was ranked 10th in the nation and 1st in Virginia out of communities of similar size. The event aims to increase crime prevention awareness, and build support and participation in anti-crime programs.

The parades will stay on main roads for safety, and will pass through the following neighborhoods between 5:30-7 p.m.
