Approximately 100 people attended Tuesday evening’s National Night Out at the neighborhood’s Central West End Neighborhood Security Initiative office, 447 N. Euclid. According to NSI Deputy Director Sarah Wickenhauser, this year’s event drew the largest crowd they’ve ever had. That won’t be apparent from my photographs as I was there early when there was a threat of rain and the crowd was light.
The national event was created to enhance police-community partnerships by providing an opportunity for local police and neighbors to meet in a relaxed setting.
