The Dearborn Police Department held its annual National Night Out on crime event on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at the Dearborn Police Department. This free event was sponsored by Target stores located in Dearborn and the Dearborn Police Department. The Dearborn event is held in conjunction with National Night Out, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, a neighborhood crime and drug prevention event that occurs annually on the first Tuesday in August. In addition to increasing awareness of crime prevention programs, National Night Out also strengthens neighborhood spirit and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that "neighborhoods are organized, working with police and are fighting back against crime!”
