National Night Out

Saco Police Department-National Night Out

National Night Out 2021

A huge thank you to everyone who attended National Night Out this year! Despite having to skip the 2020 event due to the Pandemic, we had a huge turnout and a lot of fun this year.

Our goal was to include more City departments and local businesses and organizations at the event. We believe that if community members can meet the folks they may interact with throughout their day, that neighborhood unity and partnerships will grow. Attendees had the opportunity to learn and have fun. Many tried out the drug and alcohol impairment goggles and experienced the simulated effect of consuming these substances and driving. The United States Coast Guard provided education on water safety and safety equipment while the City Water Resource Recovery department demonstrated the importance of properly disposing of household products and the effects on our sewer system, treatment plant, and waterways. The kiddos enjoyed the inflatable bounce house and slide, story walk, touch-a-truck, and giveaways. It was truly a fun-filled, enjoyable night!
