National Night Out is a yearly celebration to improve the relationship between police and communities.

The rainy weather has cancelled several events, but there are still some groups getting together. National Night Out started in 1984. since then the party has grown nationwide.

Many of the people I spoke to tell me they feel like the world is getting more dangerous and it's important to get to know your neighbor.

"We are in dangerous times," Longview resident Shyla Thompson says. "You need to know who is lives next door to you."

Police also tell me they thank everyone for their continued support.
