The Fishers Police Dept. is sponsoring local activities for the 33rd annual National Night Out crime and drug prevention event Aug. 2.
Fishers is joining forces with thousands of communities nationwide for the event, which is co-sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. In all, more than 37.5 million people are expected to participate in America’s National Night Out.
The evening of Aug. 2, Fishers residents are invited to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the night outdoors with neighbors and police. Fishers Police Chief George Kehl invites residents to spend the evening with his department in the Nickel Plate District.
The free community event will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m., with the police department also hosting its annual open house to give residents a chance to tour the department, 4 Municipal Dr., sit inside police vehicles, sample dive team gear and interact with officers. The Fishers Police Dept. K-9 Team will do demonstrations at 7 and 8 p.m., and food trucks will be on site.
