Police offer an informative night out

July 31, 2012 by  

A week today, August 7, the National Night Out event will be held at Cenry Park in Warrenville, Illinois. This function will take place from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The Warrenville Police Department will be hosting this annual event with the help of volunteers and a number of community businesses. This night out is all about home and personal safety and provides residents with the chance to meet the neighbors and enjoy a fun evening of activities. This is a community, bond-building, event that allows people to meet the police and learn about the work they do on an up-close and personal basis.

The Police Department and local merchants sponsor this event to the public as a courtesy service. A family event with something for everyone, there will be a number of informational brochures available, as well as food, live music, kids’ activities, raffles, prizes, and giveaways. Licensed teens that attend this event will be able to drive through a safety course with an officer. While they drive the course, they will be tested on such matters as driving while texting, wearing vision goggles, and other ‘under the influence’ stimulations. In keeping with this theme, it will be an alcohol-free event. The Warrenville Fire and Emergency Services will have an open house for families to view their equipment and ask questions.

Poster printing by local printing companies may have been used to advertise and promote this safety event to the public. Admission to this event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please visit National Night Out 2012 Warrenville’s website or call Sgt. VanWankum at 630-393-2131.
