Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney invites citizens to attend the Sheriff’s Office 25th Annual National Night Out (NNO). NNO is a drug and crime prevention event hosted across the country by law enforcement agencies and crime prevention organizations. The event is an opportunity for residents to promote police-community partnerships, crime prevention, and neighborhood camaraderie.
The Sheriff’s Office will be hosting events at two locations on Tuesday, August 5th.
· Citizens from western Dane County can go to Forest of Fame Park on CTH G in Mt. Vernon from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. This free family-focused event will include police, fire, and EMS equipment, athletes from the Badger Hockey Team and the UW Marching Band. There will also be a Blackhawk helicopter landing and taking off during the event.
· For residents of eastern Dane County, the NNO event will be held at the Burke Town Hall, located at 5365 Reiner Road from 5:00 to 7:30 pm. There will be fingerprinting for kids, hot dogs, games, and police, fire and EMS equipment on display.
National Night Out strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships, sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
