The Charlestown Police Department is participating in the 34th Annual National Night Out crime prevention event on Tuesday, August 1st at the Charlestown Family Activities Park located at 1000 Park St. from 6 to 9 p.m. “Our goal is to urge our neighborhoods throughout our community to help us celebrate National Night Out in a big way! “National Night Out, (or NNO), is a night that citizens across America can send a powerful message about neighborhood unity, awareness, safety & strengthen police-community partnerships, Charlestown Police Chief Keith McDonald said.”
“This community has always been great to CHPD and we would like to show our gratitude by hosting a free crime prevention party to our citizens”. “We feel it’s important that our community get to know their officers on a first name basis and our officers get to know our citizens in order to identify the needs in a particular neighborhood across our city, Chief McDonald said.”
“To show our thanks all food, drinks and activities will be provided by CHPD members free of charge from 6-9 p.m.” “We will be having smoked BBQ, and a host of activities that include free put-put, free usage of the sprinkler park, free roller skating, free family train rides through town, a Police K-9 demonstration & a small road course set up for kids ages 3-5 that can drive a battery powered miniature version of our Charlestown Police DARE SUV, we look forward to seeing you there! Chief McDonald said.”
