National Night Out draws cops, community together | Photo gallery

The 10th annual National Night Out celebration on Bainbridge Island took over Waterfront Park Tuesday, Aug. 6, again promoting police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie amidst games, displays and exhibits, and lots of free food.

According to the National Association of Town Watch, which founded the program, “Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August.”

On Bainbridge Island, the event included the chance to “touch-a-truck” and other emergency response vehicles, meet and chat with Bainbridge Island Police Department officers and firefighters, scarf ice cream bars, hot dogs, doughnut holes and popcorn, the resources to get informed about emergency preparedness, and a giant inflatable slide and obstacle course, among other attractions.

The island department’s new K9, Officer Whitney, an 80-pound bloodhound puppy, was also in attendance, as was the Review’s Luciano Marano, camera in hand. His favorite shots are collected here.
