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.
