PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – National Night Out is set to take place Tuesday night, in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and throughout the nation.

This year makes it the 36th annual National Night Out, an event run by local police departments to improve relationships between residents and police. 

Some areas in Massachusetts this year are being forced to postpone, cancel, or end their events early due to the heightening threat of Triple E in the area. 

Among those are Dartmouth and New Bedford who will be holding their event August 20th, and Fairhaven will be ending their event an hour early.
