WHEELING,W.Va. (WTRF) — The Wheeling Police Department along with the Ohio County Sheriff’s Office and Wheeling Fire Department will take part in National Night Out, set for Tuesday, Aug. 6 from 6-8 p.m. at Wheeling Park’s Ice Rink.
National Night Out, now in its 36th year throughout the country, is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
The event enhances the relationships between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It also provides a great opportunity to bring police and the community together under positive circumstances.
Wheeling PD will give away promotional items and a K-9-unit demonstration will be conducted. The Northern Regional Highway Safety Office and the department’s traffic and SWAT teams will be on hand. Free pizza and drinks, a number of displays and demos from multiple local agencies also will be part of the event.
