The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office observed the 36th National Night Out celebration this year on Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Coordinated by the community services section of the Patrol Operations Division in partnership with the community, National Night Out is an effort to help neighbors get to know one another, to celebrate their communities, and to take steps to make neighborhoods safer for all residents, explained Sgt. James Hartman of the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office. Additionally, National Night Out attempts to build positive relationships between the community and the men and women of the sheriff’s office.
National Night Out events were held in Bealeton at CK Hardware; in Marshall at Tractor Supply; at the Brookside Community Center, and at the WARF in Warrenton.
