The City of Huntsville’s National Night Out event will be held today, and the Huntsville Police Department wishes to encourage all residents to come out and enjoy this free, family-friendly event.
National Night Out–an annual event involving citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses and neighborhood organizations–is a chance for citizens to interact with local law enforcement in an effort to heighten crime prevention and awareness, as well as strengthen neighborhood spirit.
A portion of the event will be held today in the Target parking lot from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. This will provide an opportunity for citizens to interact with emergency personnel from the various first-responder agencies in Walker County.
After the event at Target, multiple caravans will depart from the Target parking lot and travel to local Neighborhood Watch parties where they will stop, allowing residents and first responders to visit and become more acquainted.
Food and refreshments, including hot dogs and hamburgers, will be available in the Target parking lot.
