National Night Out - August 7, 2012

Here is a press release from the Rock County Sheriff's Office about National Night Out.

Sheriff Robert Spoden is pleased to invite the citizens of Rock County to the National Night Out crime prevention event on Tuesday, August 7, 2012, from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Schilberg Park, located at 30 W. High Street in Milton, WI.  

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office has been working with the Milton Police Department to plan a crime prevention event that promotes law enforcement-community partnerships. Twenty-nine years ago, the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) began holding these crime prevention events. Presently, across the country, over 39 million people in more than 16,000 communities are involved in National Night Out events.

Our National Night Out event will provide an opportunity for free family fun and interaction with law enforcement and community partners. Free food and drink will be available. There will be a free bounce house and games for children, a display of emergency vehicles, SWAT, K-9 and Taser demonstrations, along with public information displays from community groups. Milton Fire/EMS will also be conducting demonstrations of fire safety equipment. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation will have a simulation display on Motorcycle safety. AAA’s Distracted Driver Experience will be on site. The Med-Flight helicopter will be available for tours. There will be a free raffle for kids’ bikes and other prizes.

We encourage all families to come out to Shilberg Park for what promises to be a fun and exciting night!
