Fayetteville Police Department to host National Night Out Event

Fayetteville Police Department is planning an evening of food, fun, and games in Fayetteville this week.

The department will host their annual National Night Out Event from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at Bryce Davis Park.

The event is part of a nationwide effort to increase awareness of policing programs and efforts in communities, such as drug prevention, neighborhood watch programs, and others.

It is also an opportunity for police to get to know the folks from the neighborhoods they serve, and vice versa.

Free hotdogs, chips, and drinks will be provided, and the event is free to attend and open to the public.

Bryce Davis Park is located at 1595 N. Dartmouth Ave. in Fayetteville.
