National Night Out Tuesday, August 2

Celebrate an evening of fun and friendship with local law enforcement officers during National Night Out in Rockford, the seventh annual event for the town. Families are invited to come on down to downtown in this event which was designed nationally as a way for neighborhoods to “take back the night” from crime and criminals. It is a time to get to know your local law enforcement officers, enjoy fun activities.

In Rockford’s National Night Out officers from the Michigan State Police, Kent County Sheriff Department and Rockford Police will be among the gathering. Last year the event included hotdogs and cake. Booths from the area’s many Neighborhood Watch organizations will be informative or entertaining. Rockford Ambulance will be on hand and the Michigan State Police K-9 unit is usually an attraction for youngsters.

Law enforcement officers enjoy the chance to interact with the public in a positive way and build relationships with the community. Giveaways, such as stickers, fliers and safety material is usually a part of the event, which takes place each year the first Tuesday of August.
