The Northern York County Regional Police Department offers our sincere gratitude and appreciation to everyone who volunteered their time to aid in the planning and execution of our first National Night Out event on August 7th.
The premise behind National Night Out is to forge partnerships between law enforcement and members of the community to aid in crime prevention and create a safer community for families. The evening was a complete success!
Over 1000 members of our community attended National Night Out. The evening included a free community cookout with displays/demonstrations from local emergency responders, businesses, and social agencies. Activities for children included a bounce house, face painting, lacrosse, and a dunk tank.
The dunk tank was a huge success. Special thanks to dunk tank victims, Chief Mark Bentzel, District Attorney Tom Kearney, and Officer Bill Haller. The dunk tank raised over 400 non-perishable food items and monetary donations. All items collected were delivered to the Dover Area Food Bank!
The NYCRPD is grateful to the National Night Out Steering Committee, the Union Hose and Fire Company, the Dover Lions Club, and all the volunteers for their countless hours that made the inaugural National Night Out a colossal success
