National Night Out occurs in more than 16,000 communities from all 50 states and is coming to a local police department near you.
National Night out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime efforts, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized to fight back. In addition, they tend to add a little fun into the mix.
Mukwonago's National Night Out will take place tonight in Field Park at the southwest corner of the Intersection of Highways NN and 83.
There will be fun activities for kids and families and local businesses and civic organizations will have displays. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase. New this year, weather permitting, will be a special stop by Air One search and rescue helicopter with a scheduled landing between 5:45 and 6:30 p.m.
