Dover Police Gearing Up for National Night Out Event to Promote Police-Community Partnerships

In just one week the Dover Police Department will once again bring the National Night Out to the Target parking lot on Tuesday, August 5th from 6-8pm.  The event brings the Dover Police Department, along with several emergency agencies and military personnel to one place where the public can bring their families to meet and greet local heroes and see the equipment used in their jobs while forming a positive relationship with the community.  In addition to appearances and demonstrations by these agencies, Night Out will feature fun activities for all ages along with food and beverages for all while supplies last.  The Dover Police Department and Target Department Store look forward to continuing the National Night Out tradition and their relationship to improve the Dover community through events such as this and the Heroes and Helpers Christmas program.  The National Night Out  gives us the opportunity to show our citizens what we do, the vehicles and equipment we use, and really gives people that attend a sense of pride in their emergency responders.  It is an opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie. While the one night is certainly not an answer to crime, drugs and violence, National Night Out represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination to help make neighborhoods a safer place year round. The night celebrates safety and crime prevention successes and works to expand and strengthen programs for the next 364 days.  The event gives us the ability to connect with people on a personal level, in a positive environment outside of the typical situations people tend to interact with us.  Kids can try on gear that officers wear, sit on a police motorcycle, put out a fire with the Dover Fire Department, and much more.  A new addition to this year’s event will be the inaugural Dover Police vs. Dover Fire Night Out Challenge where teams of 3 will compete in a rock wall relay race for the Mayor’s Cup at 7pm.  There will also be K9 demonstrations at 6:30PM and 7:30PM.  We are excited to put on this event once again and look forward to many families visiting us on August 5th.
