Families in west Nashville will take a stand against crime Tuesday night.
Homeowners, police officers and firefighters are gathering at 6 p.m. in Richland Park.
The event is part of the "National Night Out" effort to keep neighborhoods safe.
Organizers want to help residents organize block parties, neighborhood watch programs, cookouts and anything else that helps folks get to know each other.
While the vast majority of Americans say it's important for neighbors to look out for one another, about 28 percent don't know their neighbors by name.
