National Night Out is an event for all vigilant citizens dedicated to making their neighborhoods safer through police-community partnerships. In the awareness-raising campaign set for Tuesday, Aug. 1, the Mobile Police Department invites neighborhoods to learn about current public safety efforts and police specialized units. Organized since 1983 in the City of Mobile, National Night Out is about community building. This year, Community Action Groups (CAGs) and Nextdoor neighborhoods will come together in the arena of the Civic Center to get an up-close and personal look into public safety, network with law enforcement, watch live demonstrations and visit interactive exhibits on display. The Mobile Police Department Motorcycle Unit will stage an obstacle course to show how officers train to prepare for traffic enforcement, patrol duties, escorts, and parades. The Mounted Unit will demonstrate crowd control techniques, and the Bomb Squad Unit will show off how it utilizes its robot to respond to life-saving situations. The K-9 Unit will present how it assists in criminal investigations.
