National Night Out highlights the partnerships between local law enforcement and the community. This year several organizations and churches are working with the Belle Plaine Police Department in partnership on the event, including Buccaneers 4-H Club and the Church of Christ, Baptist and Methodist churches.
In addition to the food served by the police department, the organizations will be serving watermelon, snow cones and lemonade. The Police Department will also have inflatable water slides for the kids and a DJ with music.
The Belle Plaine event is traditionally well attended by local residents.
“This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors while enjoying local fellowship and cooling off with a free swim,” said Police Chief Gordon Fell.
Night Out is in its 32nd year of showcasing community partnerships
which help fight criminal activity. In 2014 nearly 38.1 million people in
16,540 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canada and military
bases worldwide participated in National Night Out.
