National Night Out is an annual family-friendly event which takes place on the first Tuesday evening in August (location may vary from year to year). The event is completely free and includes food and activities for all ages. Highlights include crime prevention materials for parents, educational games about safety for kids, and impressive equipment displays including a police car, ambulance, fire vehicle, police boat, and much more. The event is a community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. It's also a great opportunity for families to meet and interact with the police officers who serve them.
Support for National Night Out is provided by local merchants and non-profit organizations. The BIPD is deeply grateful to all the local merchants, non-profit organizations and volunteers who help make the evening a resounding success year after year. We can't do it without you!
