Sheriff Whittington also asks planners to factor in the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. “Right now, we don’t know where we will be with the pandemic, what phase we may be in, we just don’t have any of those answers,” said Sheriff Whittington. He says we can always change our plans to ensure the safety and health of our citizens.

Right now, National Night Out is scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, 2020. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign to promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
