TUPELO – The Tupelo police and fire departments are encouraging the community to get out and get to know their neighbors Thursday night as a part of a national effort to make neighborhoods safer.

Police and firefighters will be delivering ice cream to 12 different Tupelo neighborhood associations Thursday between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Sgt. Katarsha White of the Tupelo Police Department said knowing your neighbor is crucial when it comes to keeping neighborhoods safe.

“New people move in and you get to meet them or see the ones you haven’t seen in awhile,” White said. “Get out and fellowship with each other as well as share information.”
