National Night Out

2020 National Night Out Information TBD

The City of Highland Park Police Department is excited to host the City’s 2nd Annual National Night Out Celebration on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 from 6:00 PM.-8:30 PM in the front lawn of City Hall, 1707 St. Johns Ave. and the adjacent Hazel parking lot (corner of St. Johns and Hazel). All community members are invited to participate!

National Night Out is a nationwide event designed to heighten drug prevention and crime awareness, generate support and participation in local anti-crime efforts and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community relationships. Crime prevention and safety information tables and sponsors will be present.  Save-a-Star will be collecting unused prescription drugs for safe disposal. There will also be a variety of kids activities including a petting zoo, touch-a-truck, face painting, a donut eating contest (yes- donuts!), DUI simulator, bounce house, dunk tank (dunk a cop and other City staff), music, snacks and more!

Prescription Drug Disposal will be available at the event. Learn more about the Prescription Drug Disposal Program.
