There were great eats, cool pub­lic safe­ty demon­stra­tions and activ­i­ties designed for fam­i­ly fun. There were luaus, mechan­i­cal fish to ride, free ice cream and seri­ous dance moves. But there were also dis­plays of sol­i­dar­i­ty and calls for peace at this year’s 33rd Annu­al Nation­al Night Out event.

The pur­pose of the event, which takes place the sec­ond Tues­day of every August, brings pub­lic safe­ty offi­cers and com­mu­ni­ties togeth­er. Accord­ing to Nation­al Night Out, an esti­mat­ed 38 mil­lion neigh­bors in more than 16,000 com­mu­ni­ties par­tic­i­pat­ed.

Pre­vent­ing and solv­ing crime is a com­mu­ni­ty effort. Nation­al Night Out is an excel­lent pro­gram that helps the depart­ment build rela­tion­ships with cit­i­zens and cre­ate safer neigh­bor­hoods. This is one of the events we look for­ward to each year,” said Atlanta Police Chief George Turn­er.

For all its awe­some, out-of-the-box efforts, we thought Nation­al Night Out 2016 more than deserved a slideshow of our favorite tweets.
