On Tuesday, August 2, the Escondido Police Department celebrated the 33rd Annual Night Out Against Crime at Grape Day Park from 5 p.m.– 8 p.m.
National Night Out is an opportunity for citizens across America to send a powerful message about neighborhood unity, awareness, safety, and police-community partnerships.
Many members of the community turned out for the SAFE evening of fun, food, music and entertainment.
Community resource organizations provided information relating to crime prevention, drug and violence prevention, education, health and safety. Law Enforcement vehicles were on display and free opportunity drawings were held throughout the evening.
Children’s activities included fingerprinting, face painting, balloons and tattoos, a rope bridge, jump house, bike rodeo, and interactive displays at the various booths. Batman also made a special appearance, which made the evening extra special for the kids.
