For the past several years, the first Tuesday in August has been set aside as a night for the community and local law enforcement to get together for a fun, informative, free, family event.

The 2019 National Night Out is happening on Tuesday, August 6th from 6pm-8:30pm at Wesselman Park.

Everyone is invited out to this 'going away party for crime' which will include FREE food and games...and it's a great chance to meet the men and women who keep our communities safe.

A couple of our EPD buddies, Officers Eric Krogman and Kevin Corbin from the Crime Prevention Unit, stopped by the station to tell us more about the big night out. Listen to our conversation below. You don't want to miss what they tell Liberty about the soda blaster (at about 3:45). Hilarious!!!
