National Night Out

National Night OutThe Noblesville Police Department has rescheduled its National Night Out event for 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 12 at Federal Hill Commons, 175 Logan Street. The original date in August was postponed due to inclement weather.

“This is our second year for our National Night Out and we had a great turnout last year,” said Sgt. Matt McGovern, event organizer. “Children are often interested about police work and this is a great way for kids to see who we are and interact with the vehicles we use. It’s also a great opportunity for adults to ask questions and find out what services we provide.”

Guests at this year’s event can learn about crime scene evidence collection and crime prevention information, experience the “Drunk Googles,” watch a K9 demonstration, take and fill out a Child ID kit, and see the department’s boat, bicycle, motorcycle and SWAT vehicles. New to this year’s event are several activities for children including inflatables, a Dunk-A-Cop dunk tank and a Race-A-Cop tricycle race. Free hotdogs, popcorn and water will be available while supplies last.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out is nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the Noblesville Police Department.

“This event provides a great opportunity to bring police and residents together under positive circumstances,” said Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt. “The safety of our community depends on both law enforcement and the neighbors they serve. National Night Out enhances that cooperation.”
