Sunrise Police Department to Host

The Sunrise Police Department will host its annual "National Night Out Against Crime" celebration on Tuesday, August 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Sunrise Public Safety Building (10440 West Oakland Park Boulevard).
National Night Out provides Sunrise residents with access to crime-prevention information and services - including child fingerprinting. The event will also feature free refreshments, live music, children's activities, a K-9 demonstration, equipment displays, and an appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog.
National Night Out is observed each year in communities across the U.S. The event helps raise crime prevention awareness, as well as strengthen relationships between police officers and the neighborhoods they serve. It's also designed to generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs - and let would-be criminals know that communities are organized and mobilized against crime.
