A national night out

Neighborhoods across East County, including Antioch, stepped outside their homes and into the community together to celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, Aug. 2. The annual nationwide event brings communities together to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie—making neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live, according to the nonprofit National Association of Town Watch. Law enforcement officers and government leaders stopped by several East County gatherings. Statewide, 342 cities participated in the event, including Oakley, Brentwood and the unincorporated community of Discovery Bay, according to the National Association of Town Watch.
