Jonesboro holds national night out

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro hosted National Night Out events at several different locations on Tuesday night.

National Night Out is a chance for communities to build a better relationship with police departments.

Organizers provided hot dogs and games to bring the community closer to the police department.

Children at the event enjoyed all the festivities and one said, "There's so much candy! It's like a birthday party without the cake."

The Jonesboro Elks Lodge received a $2,500 grant through the Elks National Foundation to help sponsor the event.

It was hosted by the Northeast Arkansas Children's Advocacy Center.
