Salt Lake City police and firefighters are sponsoring Night Out Against Crime events tonight at several locations.

The events underscore the importance of citizens helping public safety services protect their communities by quickly reporting suspicious activity. This year, police and firefighters will promote a new service that allow the public to anonymously share video, picture or text tips with authorities. (See the accompanying information box for further details).
