Police and community come together for National Night Out
PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - Police departments all over the country hit the streets for a night out on Tuesday.
National Night Out is a community-building campaign. It allowed police to interact with the community on common ground. It also aimed to create a bond with the police and the people they serve. There were snacks, activities, and conversations that would change community relationships with law enforcement. Neighborhoods Associations also helped plan the events.
“It improves communication in a casual way, rather than having to call them to come for an incident. It’s a way of knowing the people and feeling comfortable with them.” President of the Tanglewood/Hawthorne Hills HOA Jan Deissler said.
Over 20 local neighborhoods participated in the event.
