National Night Out in De Pere

CREATED Aug. 6, 2013

De Pere, WI--  Neighborhoods across the country are keeping their porch lights on to curb crime.

Tuesday night was the 30th annual "National Night Out."   In our area,  neighbors bonded during  "block parties."

But it wasn't only about stopping crime. Law enforcement wanted to make sure these people in "De Pere" can reach-out to them.

"We want to listen to their neighborhoods concerns as little as an abandoned vehicle, to kids running through yards to burglaries", says Officer Jedd Bradley with the De Pere Police Department.
