Residents will have the opportunity to check out police cars and ambulances at a community event geared toward neighborhood camaraderie.
The Middleton Police Department said the 2013 National Night Out in Middleton will take place at Lakeview Park on Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Community Awareness Officer Jill Tutaj said National Night Out is an opportunity for communities nationwide to promote police-community partnerships and take part in crime prevention.
Festivities will include free food, door prizes, music, children’s activities and a VIP dunk tank, organizers said.
Middleton firefighters, paramedics, officers and members of other local law enforcement agencies, including K-9 and mounted horse patrols, will also be at the park. Tutaj said citizens will be able to tour the squad cars, fire apparatus and ambulance and have a chance to meet and talk to officers, paramedics and firefighters.
