HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Neighborhoods in the Pine Belt joined the national effort to stand up against crime.  

Parties were held across the City of Hattiesburg Tuesday night as part of National Night Out Against Crime. In Hattiesburg, city officials and residents enjoyed fellowship, games and hot dogs at Target, while many other folks gathered at places like the Hattiesburg Zoo and several area churches.

"We proclaim this day as a national night out does, we also participate in the national night out against crime," said Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree.

City officials want to send the message that together as a community crime won't be tolerated.
