[ARCHIVED] National Night Out 2018

Pony Rides

The Thurmont Police Department will be hosting their National Night Out event on Tuesday August 7, 2018 from 6:00pm until 7:30pm at the Thurmont Police Department complex.  National Night Out was established in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch.  While the traditional “lights on” and front porch vigils remain a part of the National Night Out, activities have expanded considerably over the years.  National Night Out is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.  This event is also a perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors, the Thurmont Police Department, and other local Emergency Services as the parking lot will be lined with Thurmont Police vehicles; fire trucks and ambulances from the Guardian Hose Company and the Thurmont Community Ambulance Service.

           At this year’s event, the Thurmont Police Commission will be dedicating a Stone Memorial in honor of all Law Enforcement Officers.  There will be free food and drink, tours of the Police Station, demonstrations of emergency vehicles, information for local and county services, Pony Rides, Inflatable Fun House, and of course “Safety Pup.”
