The Leland Police Department is excited to host National Night Out on Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. in Founders Park, located at 113 Town Hall Drive.
Everyone is welcome to attend National Night Out, which will include food trucks, a DJ, games, raffles, and the opportunity to meet and engage with local law enforcement.
National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes partnerships between police and the communities they serve, along with neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
“We’re looking forward to another opportunity to connect with the community we serve at National Night Out,” Police Chief Jeremy Humphries said. “We know that strong relationships with our residents, business community, and other area agencies are so important, and we’re excited to continue building on those.”
Representatives from Leland Fire/Rescue, North Carolina State Highway Patrol, Wilmington Police Department, Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office, and Brunswick County EMS will also be attending National Night Out, along with other community organizations and businesses distributing information.
Millions of people across thousands of communities from all 50 states take part in National Night Out every year. While some choose to celebrate in August, the Leland Police Department opted for the October date in hopes of cooler weather.
