National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. There will be many other neighboring police departments in attendance. Together, we are making it happen.
From 6:30-8:30, neighbors throughout Barrington and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on your front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement.
