COLUMBUS (Ken Hines) -- Hilltop-area residents are preparing to hit the streets to take their neighborhood back from criminals.
Volunteers are posting fliers along S. Ogden Ave. to promote National Night Out, which will be held in the area on Tuesday, August 6.
Organizers are planning a block party to encourage crime prevention, which is gaining importance in the Hilltop area due to a recent spike in home break-ins.
Anyone interested in participating in National Night Out is encouraged to gather with neighbors in front of a home or homes to discuss potential ways to fight back against crime.
