Thousands of Burbank residents on Tuesday turned out for National Night Out events across the city – part of a nationwide effort to encourage neighborhoods to band together in the fight against crime.
At the main event on the Chandler Bikeway, police and parks officials brought everything from games to the mounted patrol to entertain residents as 18 other National Night Out parties took place throughout Burbank.
Police use the citywide events to encourage residents to sign up for neighborhood watch programs and, as Sgt. Darin Ryburn said before the event, “for all of us, as officers, to reach out to the community.”
