FORT RILEY, Kansas (AP) – Fort Riley soldiers and families will gather the evening of Aug. 7 for activities tied to the annual National Night Out.

The National Night Out brings law enforcement and citizens together every August to promote anti-crime efforts and public safety. It’s observed in neighborhoods and on military bases throughout the U.S.

The Fort Riley Police Department says the event has been held at the northeast Kansas Army post for more than 18 years.

Post officials say the goal is to promote neighborhood spirit and improve relationships among local law enforcement, the military community and the Geary County school district.
