If you live in one of Durham’s neighborhoods, you might want to know that tonight is national night out. The annual event encourages cooperation between residents and police, and as usual Durham and the DPD are participating. So if you spot the popo on your block tonight, there’s probably nothing to be worried about.
Recently there has, of course, been some anti-police rhetoric in Durham (and, you know, a lot of places) but in my experience these events tend to be fairly positive. You can probably expect a council member or the mayor to swing by, in addition to DPD officers and Durham County Sheriff’s deputies.
