The Bristol TN Police Department will be hosting a community event as part of the National Night Out annual campaign. The event will be held on August 1 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at The Boys and Girls Club, 2000 West State Street in Bristol, TN. The National Night Out event is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make 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.
Pizza, popcorn, and drinks will be provided at the event, and school supplies will be given out while supplies last. There will also be inflatables and a Bicycle Rodeo for the children to enjoy. Participants in the Bicycle Rodeo must bring their own bike.
“Attendees will receive information regarding gun safety from the NRA’s Eddie Eagle,” said Lt. Walter Brown with the Bristol TN Police Department. “The Bristol TN Fire Department will have the ‘Smoke House’ demonstration trailer on scene, so attendees can learn what to do in case of a fire. There will also be police cars, fire trucks, and the Wellmont 1 helicopter on site for viewing.”
