Tonight, communities across California and in Kern County will gather and celebrate National Night Out, an annual awareness campaign to build strong, safe neighborhoods with local law enforcement agencies.
Senator Jean Fuller (R-Bakersfield) issued the following statement:
"Members of our community are expected to join the millions of Americans gathering this evening in neighborhoods across our country to celebrate National Night Out. This annual event is designed to build stronger partnerships between law enforcement officers and the residents they serve and protect.
"It is more important than ever to show support for our local law enforcement heroes who put on their uniforms each and every day to keep our neighborhoods safe.
"So join in. You can simply turn on your porch lights this evening and show your appreciation for the officers in our community."
