NORTH TONAWANDA – The community is invited to a free event to meet their neighbors and local police at the city’s annual Night Out event from 6 to 9 p.m. today in North Tonawanda High School, 405 Meadow Drive.

“It’s a chance to meet police in a different setting and see a different side,” said Chief William R. Hall. “It’s also a chance for everybody to get out and meet each other.”

The event will include free hot dogs and drinks, entertainment, car safety checks and Operation Safe Child, which provides free fingerprinting identification for children.

The National Night Out program began in 1984 for communities across the country to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
