2013 National Night Out A Huge Success

National-Night-Out-2013-1Thank You to all Who Participated

Last night neighborhoods across Valparaiso joined together with the Valparaiso Police Department to show support against crime in the community. A total of ten neighborhoods participated in this year’s National Night Out. Neighborhoods participating this year included Pine Creek Subdivision, Essex Park Subdivision, Maple Creek Subdivision, Campbell Meadows Subdivision, Lexington Green Subdivision, 300 Block of Parkside (Kirkoff Park Neighborhood), 1300 Block of Napoleon, Hawthorne Subdivision, Meridian Woods and the 3500 block of Oak Grove.

Each location had a great turnout. Numerous police officers, police officer’s family members, volunteers and Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) members participated in the event. National-Night-Out-2013-2Police cars and K-9 demonstrations stole the show at most locations. Neighborhoods participating shared ice cream, hot dogs and many homemade dishes with visiting police officers. The Valparaiso Target Store was a corporate sponsor and provided back to school materials to all the children participating.

This event was a huge success due to all the participation of community members in each neighborhood.
