Edmonds Police Foundation to host a “Night Out”
The Edmonds Police Foundation will host an “Edmonds Night Out” from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 29 at the Francis Anderson play field.
Edmonds Night Out is an offshoot of the National Night Out, an annual event held to bring police and community together in an attempt to combat crime.
Robin Heslop, former head of Crime Prevention in Edmonds, started this event as a grassroots effort that she organized around the Block Watches.
In 2002 and 2003, Edmonds won two national awards from the National Town Watch organization that puts on the “National Night Out” event.
The Hagen Firm, Windermere of Edmonds, the McDevitt Family, Campbell Nelson Volkswagen/Subaru, QFC and My Edmonds News are sponsoring this year’s event.
Enjoy free ice cream while watching Edmonds Police K-9 demonstrations, get your face painted, and watch the clowns.
Learn about community safety issues, and meet the Edmonds police chief and several members of the police department.
