The night of Aug. 7, St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken J. Mascara and members of his command staff will visit neighborhood-based anti-crime groups to observe National Night Out Against Crime.

"This will be the 28th Sheriff's Office observance of National Night Out," said Sheriff Mascara. "The Sheriff's Office brought this program to St. Lucie County to demonstrate that law enforcement and county residents are united in a strong partnership to fight crime."

National Night Out is designed to:

- Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs;

- Strengthen neighborhood spirit and Sheriff's Office-community partnerships; and

-  Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
