One week from today, Tuesday, Aug. 6, is National Night Out 2019 in the City of Poughkeepsie from 5 - 8 pm. Join in the fun, hang out with your neighbors and friends, and be part of a great community event.

What exactly is national Night Out? National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes police/community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. It provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

There will be plenty of activities for the whole family. A petting zoo, free food, vendors, and Touch a Truck with police vehicles, fire trucks, and ambulances. There will also be K9 demos, school bus safety drills, and more than 50 community partners offering literature, information and fun giveaways on services available to them in Poughkeepsie.
