The City of Perris hosts its annual National Night Out from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday (Aug. 8) at Skydive Baseball Park, 415 Dale Street.
The yearly event provides residents the chance to meet and chat with local police officers and firefighters, learn information about anti-crime programs like Neighborhood Watch, view demonstrations of police canines in action and view firefighters practicing their techniques to free people trapped inside wrecked vehicles.
Perris Mayor Daryl Busch said residents will gain a new appreciation for law enforcement and public safety at National Night Out.
“It is a great, and I want to emphasize great, outreach effort on the part of our public safety folks to show all the varied aspects of their jobs,” Busch said. “Most people only see police on motorcycles or in patrol cars, but this event provide the chance to view the full spectrum of services they provide to our community.”
Perris officials will be on hand to accept a plaque for their continuing support of law enforcement and public safety.
The day’s activities also include static displays, food and drink vendors, as well as games and jumpers for children.
