SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Crime prevention was the focus in Tuesday night as officers worked to educate area youth. The City of Springfield hosted the 30th Annual National Night Out.
Officers talked with kids about safety and neighborhood unity. They’re the lessons they say can go a long way towards a safe community and it’s a message they like to share.
“We can get out here and show appreciation to the citizens and let them know how much they mean to the Springfield Police Department and what a resource they are to us,” said Sgt. Tom Rappy, Springfield Police Department.
This is a national event that impacts more than 37 million people.
