Springfield To Hold Night Out Events With Police At 11 Locations
Many cities in the region will participate Tuesday in National Night Out, an annual event that seeks to improve relations between the police and the community.
With free food and entertainment at 11 locations National Night Out has become a mid-summer institution in Springfield, Massachusetts where it has been held for more than 20 years.
Magda Rodriquez, the Springfield Police Department’s Community Liaison, said the police look forward to participating.
" You're going to see K-9 units and all of the police department there and actively engaging with the community," said Rodriquez.
One of the events scheduled is a “peace walk” through one of the city’s high crime neighborhoods.
