WYANDOTTE – The Wyandotte Nation Tribal/Municipal Police Department(WNTPD) will be hosting a Community Block Party during “National Night Out” Tuesday evening, Oct. 3 at the Bearskin Fitness Center Gym, 1 Turtle Drive in Wyandotte from 6-8 p.m.

The event was originally set to take place at the Heritage Acres Park but has been moved indoors due to rain.

This yearly event provides an opportunity for the community to come together and visit with neighbors and local law enforcement to form stronger partnerships. The evening events will feature fun activities, burgers, hot dogs, refreshments, and prizes.

The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” began in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie, and to send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. That first year, 2.5 million Americans took part across 400 communities in 23 states.

Annually, communities across the United States join forces and celebrate National Night Out.
