In an effort to create positive relationships with local businesses and residents, the Marana Police Department strives to ensure that every interaction with the public is a positive one.
National Night Out is an opportunity for the police department to work hand-in-hand with local businesses to provide a fun and informative event for the public, allowing interaction between the public, local businesses and law enforcement.
National Night Out with MPD will be held in front of the Target located at 3901 W. Ina Road this Friday, Oct. 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. The department will be on hand along with community partners Target, Starbucks, Chick-Fil-A, Northwest Fire, Marana Animal Services and the Marana Prevention Alliance.
“This is a great way for the residents of Marana to come out and interact with the Marana Police Department,” said MPD Community Resource Unit Officer David Danielson.
The event will include four law enforcement demonstrations from Marana Police Department K9 Unit, MPD Motors, the Arizona Search and Recovery K9, and the Marana Police Explorers. The Pima County SWAT Unit will be on hand, and there will be a child ID fingerprinting booth, as well as giveaways by Target, Starbucks and Chick-Fil-A.
Pump It Up will also be on hand with games and giveaways for the kids.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods and communities safer, more caring places to live. The goal is to use National Night Out to enhance the relationship between the Marana Police Department and the Marana residents and business owners to bring back a true sense of community.
