The Atlanta Police Department’s Zone 2 officers will honor National Night Out on Saturday, July 30, at the community pool on Cross Creek Parkway in Buckhead.

National Night Out was started in 1984 to heighten crime and drug prevention as well as build bonds between neighborhoods and police departments.

While the national date for most departments to commemorate the day with communities is Aug. 2, Zone 2 of the APD is meeting with those from Buckhead community on July 30 at the pool located at 1221 Cross Creek Parkway from 6 p.m to 8 p.m., according to a spokesperson.
