NYPD and city officials will celebrate Nation Night Out Against Crime, an annual campaign created to foster relationships between police and the communities they serve, on Tuesday, Aug. 3.

The 16 police precincts in Queens, part of 76 precincts citywide, will host community events featuring food, games, face painting and live entertainment. The event traditionally takes place on the first Tuesday in August.

National Night Out was founded by the National Association of Town Watch in 1984 and approximately 2.5 million people in 23 states participated in the inaugural event. Nearly four decades later, tens of millions of people in the U.S. and Canada continue to participate in the tradition.
