The city of Laurel hosted a family-friendly, anti-crime event Tuesday evening.      

The annual Night Out Against Crime was held at Mason Park.

"Tonight is that night that we will let you know, regardless how you feel about us, we are here for you," said Sgt. Shannon Caraway of the Laurel Police Department. "We will do what we have to do to protect you, we will listen to your complaints and try to make it work for all of us."
