Citizens are invited to join our Davidson Police Department on Tuesday, August 2 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the field at the Ada Jenkins Center (212 Gamble Street) to celebrate National Night Out. The event is free and open to the public.
National Night Out is an annual crime prevention and community-building event sponsored by the Davidson Police Department to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-citizen partnerships, and neighborhood cohesiveness.
The Brickhouse Tavern is providing hot dogs and hamburgers, Harris Teeter is supplying water, and Homewood Suites is supplying ice, plates, napkins, and utensils. We’ll also provide chicken tenders. Citizens are encouraged to bring a side dish or dessert to share.
We will have a tent with tables and chairs so that our citizens are comfortable and have plenty of seating. We will also have a dunking booth, face painting, and other activities for children. The Davidson Police Department will distribute information and items from the Watch for Me NC initiative to educate citizens about pedestrian safety.
“We value our partnership with our citizens who work with us to keep Davidson the safe place that it is to work, live, and raise a family,” said Chief Jeanne Miller. “This year we hope citizens from all parts of Davidson will join us to celebrate our wonderful community and meet all of our officers.”
A variety of groups will be present to educate our citizens: North Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers, Mecklenburg County’s District Attorney’s office, MEDIC, Mental Health Association, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Communications, Safe Alliance, Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, Davidson Fire Department (with a fire truck), and CharMeck Alerts.
