National Night Out Date Changed in Pittsylvania County

Pittsylvania Co., VA - The weather has caused the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office to postpone its local Night Out event.

The annual event, designed to raise awareness of crime prevention efforts in the community, is celebrated nationwide on the first Tuesday in August, but Pittsylvania County has changed the date locally to April 29.
Deputies say many participants complained about the hot August weather. They ask that folks still turn on their porch lights on August 6th as a way to show solidarity with the national event.
