Topeka neighborhoods are being recognized for their crime prevention efforts.
The National Association of Town Watch awarded 30 neighborhoods for their participation in National Night Out Against Crime last August. The Great Overland Station hosted the event Wednesday.
Scott Crider is the chair of the National Night Out Against Crime committee. He said 3500 Topeka and Shawnee County residents took part in the effort to keep their neighborhoods safe in the fall.
This year's National Night Out Against Crime will be August 9.
