National Night Out is an annual family-friendly event hosted by police departments across the nation to promote crime prevention and personal safety by providing educational materials for parents, hosting games about safety for kids, and allowing community members to get to know the officers who serve them. There is also free food, prizes, and impressive equipment displays featuring police cars, police motorcycles, ambulances, fire vehicles, BIPD’s police boat, and more. The location of the event varies from year to year, but it always takes place on the first Tuesday evening in August. Unfortunately, the BIPD is not hosting National Night Out in 2021, but is planning to organize an event for 2022. Be sure to follow us on Facebook! You'll be the first to know what plans we have in store. For more information, visit the National Night Out website or email us.
