Sentinel staff report–
The first Tuesday in August would normally see various neighborhood crime watch groups gathering outdoors in Citrus Heights and across the nation, but this year is anything but normal.

The latest event cancellation caused by COVID-19 is National Night Out, a night where police and neighbors join together to build community and prevent crime.

Nationally, organizers are encouraging residents to shift National Night Out gatherings to Oct. 6 — the first Tuesday in October — citing ongoing concerns with COVID-19.

In Citrus Heights, police said earlier this month that local events were “postponed.” A police spokesman did not respond to an email request sent Monday asking whether a future date will likely be rescheduled.

National Night Out began in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch and has grown to involve over 38 million people across the United States and Canada, according to organizers. The events are often hosted by neighborhood watch groups.
