Monsoon rains drenched participants at the National Night Out neighborhood crime prevention festivities at Green Valley Park over the weekend, but thousands still showed up to talk to police officers about block watch programs and ways in which neighbors can look out for each other.

National Night Out forges neighborhood ties to prevent crime
At 2:30 in the afternoon, the swollen skies unleashed the rain, but organizers at the National Night Out (NNO) sat prepared with umbrellas and pop-up awnings at Green Valley Park. Still, the weather brought back memories of last year’s canceled event. Some drenched families quickly packed up coolers and camp chairs and scurried off to cars. A line of vehicles waited to turn onto Main Street to take their occupants out of the rain.
