LAKEVIEW — Town Hall police are asking locals to join them in the park Tuesday night for "National Night Out."
The country-wide initiative launched more than 30 years ago. On the first Tuesday of each August, community police officers and neighborhood groups gather outside for a night of games, meet-and-greets and crime prevention awareness.
The Town Hall district — which includes Lakeview and parts of Uptown, Lincoln Park and North Center — will host its night out from 5-8 p.m. at the Clarendon Park Fieldhouse, 4501 N. Clarendon Ave.
Several regularly held CAPS meetings will be canceled this month. Officers are asking attendees to go to "National Night Out" instead.
• Beat 1913 (Tuesday meeting canceled)
• Beats 1923, 1924, 1925 (Wednesday meeting canceled)
• Beat 1915 (Thursday meeting canceled)
• Beat 1914 (Aug. 13 meeting canceled)
