National Night Out in Lee County


Lee County families got up close and personal with law enforcement Tuesday night.

First responders hosted a “National Night Out” and Back-to-school Bash at Twin Oaks Elementary school. It included plenty of games, lessons on gun safety, and ID kits to help in case a child goes missing.

"National Night Out is a night for the community to come out and see that public safety cares and that we're crime preventers,” said Sgt. Daphne Lindsey, Lee County Sheriff’s Office. “It's a night for the kids to come out and get school supplies also."

Tuesday night was the actual National Night Out, though events were held last week in Dougherty and Worth Counties. They held them early before the first day of school.
