HANOVER, Va. –National Night Out in Hanover County was celebrated on August 4, 2015. Over 65 communities participated as we shared in great food, fun and fellowship. Amongst the celebration and new to the night was our Worship Watch group, who joined with us and our Neighborhood and Business Watch partners.
The event kicked off at 10 a.m. at the Target in Mechanicsville and, throughout the day, Hanover deputies and first responders visited Neighborhood, Business and Worship Watch communities! Partnerships were strengthened, and the outpouring of support reflected the great relationships we share with our community.
Organized by the Hanover Sheriff’s Office, the National Night Out event in Hanover signifies our unified stand against crime. It is formalized through the partnerships we share with our community watch programs:
• Business Watch
• Neighborhood Watch
• Worship Watch
These programs connect with our neighborhoods, businesses and faith communities through continual communication, education, and working together. In these programs, citizens are afforded an opportunity to learn more about their Sheriff’s Office, partner together and become better aware of events in their community.

“Partnering together and developing a shared vision of community has always been the key to a successful law enforcement agency. We are fortunate to have such great community partners in Hanover County that working together is not just the latest program, it’s how we operate,” said Colonel David R. Hines, sheriff.
