National Night Out takes place in Fillmore

This is the time of year when many communities are holding what’s known as National Night Out. An event to promote police-community partnerships.

From the K-9 unit, to the Mounted Unit and Bomb Squad, the National Night Out in Fillmore is an opportunity to get to know the officers in your neighborhood, says Sergeant Will Hollowell at Fillmore Police department.

"It gives people a chance to come out and meet the Police Officers that are assigned to the area and the tools and equipment we use to make the community safe," he told KCLU.

He said, "The members of the community are our eyes and ears and need to be able to feel safe to report crimes and to not be afraid to report crimes and have the confidence that we work together with them to make the community safe for all of us."

The event takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Shiell’s park in Fillmore.
