Panama City, FL –
PANAMA CITY, Florida (WMBB) – Local law enforcement agencies are planning to come together for a community outreach initiative on Tuesday night.
The Panama City Police Department is hosting an event for National Night Out, which is a nationwide initiative to help promote camaraderie among law enforcement, relevant agencies and communities to help make neighborhoods safer.
The event will feature bouncy houses, interactive games and plenty of hot dogs.
Sergeant Joseph Record said it is important to have contacts within the community.
“Much of the community doesn’t understand what law enforcement, fire departments and other agencies are really doing for their community,” said Sgt. Record says. “With events like this, it allows us to bring the community together to better understand what we’re doing and what we’re doing for them… It’s just a really good way to connect with the community.”
The event will take place in historic downtown Panama City between 5th Street and Beach Drive on Tuesday, August 3. It will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
