ST. CHARLES PARISH - On Tuesday, Aug. 4 neighborhoods throughout St. Charles Parish are being invited to join forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the 26th annual National Night Out Against Crime/Drug Prevention event.

National Night Out is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by Sheriff Greg Champagne and the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.
