WESTFORD — National Night Out returned to Westford On Tuesday evening, complete with bounce houses, food trucks and a petting zoo.

Established in 1984, the National Night Out campaign was created as a partnership between law enforcement and communities to promote neighborhood camaraderie to build community and reduce crime. As of 2022, 38 million community members within 16,000 communities participate in the program each year.
