NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

Meet your local police department and learn how you can help them protect and serve your community at National Night Out events across the Tri-State this week.

The annual outdoor parties unite police and neighbors in support of building stronger partnerships and crime prevention.

"If the community knows the police department cares and wants to talk to them about the little problems, it curtails the bigger problems," said Newport Police Lt. Paul Kunkel during an appearance Sunday on FOX19 NOW Morning News.

Newport's National Night Out will run 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Target store parking lot, 160 Pavilion Parkway.

Police will put on a SWAT demonstration and promote home, work, gun and bicycle safety.

There will be door and raffle prizes, including a children's bicycle raffle, a Campbell County Public Library book donation and Sport Clips will provide back-to-school haircuts for children.

Sponsors also will provide food and beverages they run out.

Other National Night Events will be held in communities such as Florence, Pierce Township, Milford, Middletown, Clearcreek Township and Lebanon.
