Tracy residents are expected on Tuesday, August 6, to join people in Mountain House and across the country for drinks and barbecues to mark National Night Out.

The event first started August 7, 1984, to demonstrate a neighborhood’s solidarity against crime in the community, according to the event promoters National Association of Town Watch.

“Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going Away Party” is this year’s theme in the Tracy, according to a press release from the Tracy Police Department.

Chief of Police Gary Hampton and local representatives will visit gatherings of neighborhood watch groups to show support for residents and National Night Out events. In 2012, the chief made 11 stops in Tracy.

This is the ninth year the city of Tracy has marked National Night Out. Register your neighborhood group with the police department by calling Vivian Mendoza at (209) 831-6614.
