It's that time of year again when the Lake Charles Police Department will participate in the National Night Out by holding their own event on August 7th, 2018.

According to Matt Young with the City Of Lake Charles,

This event is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make neighborhoods safer, more enjoyable places to live.

This year's event will take place at the Lake Charles Civic Center Exhibition Hall on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.

Young said that there will be several booths providing info on public safety and featuring public service members in the community.

They will also have a cool thing for the kiddos. For children ages 4 to 12 years old, there will be a Kids Zone with pizza for them. This is a completely free event, so make plans to attend.
