The Speedway Police Department is inviting residents of Speedway to join members of the Department in celebrating National Night Out crime prevention event. The event, which is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch, brings over 38.1 million people in more than 16,540 communities together to promote the partnership between the police and the community. The event will encourage crime, drug and violence prevention, safety, and neighborhood unity. Citizens across America can send a powerful message about neighborhood unity, awareness, safety, and police-community partnerships. Let criminals know that the Town of Speedway is united and dedicated to building a safer, more caring community. Please join the members of the Speedway Police and Fire Departments for the event to be held on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018, in Leonard Park from 6-8PM.
Highlights of the National Night Out event will include free food and drinks provided by area merchants (while supplies last), police demos, and information about various anticrime initiatives. We’ll also have music, kids’ activities, information booths from public safety-related organizations, civic groups, town departments, and much more!
