Meet Local Police and Firefighters at National Night Out

Touch a truck, meet local law enforcement and play fun safety games!

Every year, law enforcement agencies across the nation team up to bridge the gap between local municipalities and the community. National Night Out first started in 1983 and is observed annually the first Tuesday of August from 6-9p.

Locations vary for participating municipalities but all encourage the same; meeting and spending time with local police, firefighters, EMS and their vehicles. Children love this event for the up close and personal look inside several police cars, fire trucks and hands on activities at the National Night Out.
