Residents turned out all over the city for National Night Out, August 7, the annual campaign that brings police closer to communities. City leaders were spread out at over three dozen locations to hang out, eat hotdogs and participate in games and raffles. At the Conservatory at Four Mile Run, for instance, Alexandria Police gave away free bicycles, backpacks and gift certificates from community partners.
