Celebrate National Night Out with Us!
The Bainbridge Island Police Department (BIPD) invites you to celebrate the 34th annual “National Night Out” on August 1st, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00pm at Town Square, 280 Madison Avenue. The event takes place annually on the first Tuesday in August to strengthen local anti-crime efforts and provide an opportunity for islanders to get to know the officers who serve them.
The entire family-friendly event is open to the public. Everything is free, including food, beverages, and lots of activities for all ages. Highlights include games, equipment displays, the opportunity to meet BIPD officers, an inside look at a police car, ambulance, fire vehicle, police boat, and much more.
Attendees will have the opportunity to win a ride on BIPD’s police boat, a child’s police bike, a basket full of BIPD swag, a BIPD hosted child’s birthday party, lunch with Chief Hamner, or - the highlight of the evening - the opportunity to go up against Chief Hamner in a donut eating challenge!
Support for National Night Out is provided by local merchants and non-profit organizations. If you cannot attend NNO in-person, you can still participate in the event by leaving your front porch light on, which is a hallmark of the event.
Chief Hamner encourages all Bainbridge Islanders to attend this annual event, “Don’t miss this great family opportunity to learn more about crime prevention, meet the officers that serve you, and have some fun!”
