Police and neighbors will get together for an evening of
family-friendly fun, activities and food in the Milwaukee Police
Department’s 7th District NATIONAL NIGHT OUT event THURSDAY NIGHT,
AUGUST 4 IN KOPS PARK, ALDERMAN JIM BOHL said.
THE EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE FROM 5:30 TO 8:30 P.M. ON THURSDAY NIGHT,
AUGUST 4, AT KOPS PARK (CORNER OF W. CONCORDIA AVENUE AND N. 86TH
STREET). A short program will take place at 6:15 p.m., featuring remarks
from Alderman Bohl, MAYOR TOM BARRETT and other participants.
“Every day, Milwaukee’s police officers and firefighters put themselves
in harm’s way to protect the public,” Alderman Bohl said. “National
Night Out is a great way to interact with our city’s finest, spend time
with neighbors and make our community a safer place in which to live.”
National Night Out began in 1984 to promote safe neighborhoods, and now
includes more than 35 million people across all 50 states. The local
event is sponsored by the Kops Park and Cooper Park neighborhood groups,
with the participation of officers from Milwaukee Police District Seven.
