Residents who gathered at 20 locations throughout the City of Alameda on Tuesday were among the nearly 38 million people celebrating National Night Out.

Now in its 31st year, National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that takes place across the country, in U.S. territories, some Canadian cities, and military bases around the world. Its purpose is to unite communities and promote stronger relationships between residents and police.
