8/1/11 – There will be a change in this year’s “National Night Out” in Columbus. Police Chief Dan Meister said Tuesday night will be more of a neighborhood night than last year. Last year public events were held at Fireman’s Park. This year Meister hopes residents will join their next door neighbors and roving police in talking about public safety. National Night Out was initially designed as a program promoting better relations between the public and local Police.
