National Night Out set for Aug. 5, 2014

National Night Out is Tuesday, August 5, 2014. It's an important night for WTHR and for the central Indiana community as we tackle the problem of crime in our neighborhoods.

Earlier this month, we launched the Blue Pledge, an initiative that encourages you to call 911 if you see something suspicious in your neighborhood, and to organize a Crime Watch Block Club.

Next Tuesday, we'll be visiting communities across central Indiana to find out how residents are taking back their neighborhoods, and we'll bring you their stories at 5:00 and 11:00 pm on WTHR.

Let us know what your neighborhood is doing to fight crime. If you're organizing a National Night Out event, let us know by posting a comment below or emailing us.

On Twitter, use the hashtag #NNOBluePledge and keep us posted on your event.
