Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - Decatur citizens are invited to light up the night and say good-bye to crime during the 32nd Annual National Night Out on August 4.

Decatur officials say they will join the National Association of Town Watch's and the Coalition of Neighborhood Organizations' campaign to reduce crime in local communities.  Citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, government officials, and businesses will travel to four local parks during this special event, which kicks off at the Decatur Civic Center at 5:00 p.m.

We've included a schedule of planned stops during this event below:

- 5:30 p.m. until 5:50 p.m.: Nelson Park
- 6:05 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.: Johns Hill Park
- 6:50 p.m. until 7:10 p.m.: Kiwanis Park
- 7:30 p.m. until 7:50 p.m.: Monroe Park

Officials say there will be giveaways at each stop, as well as awards from individual "Neighborhood Ambassadors."  Families who aren't able to make it to this event can still show their support by leaving their porch lights now from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.
