Veterans Memorial Park in East Meadow will host National Night Out, a nationwide anti-crime event, on Tuesday.
Anyone from Nassau County is invited to the event, during which county police will provide information about public safety. Refreshments and games will be available.
The event is designed to “heighten crime and drug prevention and awareness” and “send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back,” organizers said in a statement.
The event begins at 7 p.m. The park is at the intersection of Prospect and East Meadow avenues.
