National Night Out Fosters Community Rapport With Law Enforcement

Annual Event Set For August 6 At Kinder Farm Park


Every year on the first Tuesday in August, communities across the country come out for an event that encourages a positive relationship between neighbors and law enforcement. This summer, National Night Out is slated for August 6, and the Anne Arundel County Eastern District festivities will take place at Kinder Farm Park from 6:00pm-8:00pm.

The free event, which will take place rain or shine, is open to all ages and will feature activities including contests, kids’ games, community booths, light snacks, police and fire vehicles on display, and more. Attendees can interact with law enforcement officials, explore some of their vehicles, and observe a K-9 demonstration in a safe environment designed to bring police and neighbors together.

Sara Gannon, chair of National Night Out for Anne Arundel County’s Eastern District, explained that in past years the event has been the largest of its kind in the county, drawing nearly 3,000 community members. Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with and ask questions of representatives from the police department, sheriff’s office and other agencies, and kids can look forward to interacting with police gear and sitting on motorcycles or ATVs that may be at the event, Gannon said.

Kinder Farm Park is located at 1001 Kinder Farm Park Road in Millersville. Stay tuned to for event updates, or follow the “Anne Arundel County Eastern District: National Night Out” Facebook page.
