SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — National Night Out is on August 5, but Saturday volunteers with the Springfield Police Department were working to spread the word early.
They set up several booths at the Springfield Summer Fair at Island Park for the National Night Out Kickoff event. Organizers say it’s all about developing relationships with your neighbors and educating yourself about what can be done to protect yourself and those you care about.
“I think it’s important to get involved and come out and see what programs and resources are available to help keep you safe and your neighborhood safe. There is a variety of information out there,” says Community Service Officer Tana Steers.
The event is still in need of volunteers to make sure the event runs smoothly. If you’re interested, contact the Springfield Police Department.
