National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
National Night Out 2017 was a great success! The weather was beautiful and the conversation was lively.
Chief Jones of Gorham PD acted as the "bad guy" showing us the impressive skills of one of his agency's K-9 teams.
Chief Schofield of Windham PD and his Community Policing Officer, Officer Cyr showed us the camaraderie that develops between the kids in his agency's Project Adventure Program.
Sheriff Joyce met with our neighbors while others from the Sheriff's Office showed off our transport bus, robot and Chief Deputy Gagnon served up hot dogs.
All this while Windham Parks and Rec. provided fun games and neighbors were meeting neighbors talking about our communities.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, the Gorham Police Department and the Windham Police Department are your neighbors too. We care about our neighbors and enjoy these events where we really get to just meet and hang out.
Mark your calendars for next year's National Night Out. August 7, 2018!!
