On Friday, October 15, 2021, 6-8pm, the Rocky Mount Police Department will host National Night Out against Crime on the Helen P. Gay Train Station lawn. There will be music, food, games, and much more. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides an excellent opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Said Rocky Mount Police Chief Robert Hassell: “Members of the Rocky Mount Police Department are dedicated to providing exemplary service to improve the quality of life and reduce crime by building partnerships within the community. As a result, Rocky Mount has seen a decrease in property and violent crimes over the past few months. The Rocky Mount Police Department contributes the decrease in crimes to proactive policing and the cooperation and teamwork of the community. National Night Out gives us the platform to highlight how much our community means to us during an evening of unity.”
This National Night Out event will have music, free games, free food, inflatables, and more.
The train station is located at 101 Coastline Street, Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
