PELHAM – Pelham Police Department’s National Night Out has been rescheduled to Nov. 2 due to the threat of severe weather.

It was announced at the Sept. 20 Pelham City Council meeting that the Pelham Police Department will host a National Night Out at Pelham City Park as a way to strengthen the relationship between first responders and community members.

This is Pelham’s fourth National Night Out event as last year’s event was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. According to the event’s Facebook page, National Night Out events are designed to “strengthen police-community partnerships, heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, and to generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts.”

Several police departments across the United States have held National Night Out events over the past few years as a way to better acquaint first responders with members of the community. Pelham police officers and members of the Pelham Fire Department will be present at the event to interact with members of the community through open conversation platforms and first responder and public safety demonstrations.

All other details of the National Night Out are the same. The event will go from 6-8 p.m. and is open to the public. There will also be free food and some prize giveaways.
