The Berryville Police department is once again sponsoring a community “National Night Out”. The nationwide campaign involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials together in a show of unity towards heightened crime and drug prevention awareness.
Berryville’s National Night out will be held on August 2 at 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm in Rose Hill park.
This year’s 28th annual National Night Out is intended to generate support and participation in local anticrime programs, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships while also sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
“We’ll be sponsoring a moon bounce for kids and giving away hot dogs” said Berryville police chief Neal White. “I hope to see everyone there.”
Clarke County Sheriff’s Office will have their Crime Scene Unit on hand for the community to view. They will also be giving out drinks, hotdogs, and giving away door prizes.
