It is the National Night Out – a celebration of public safety.

Organizers describe it as an annual community-building campaign  promoting public safety agency-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to towns and neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

“National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community,” said event organizer CPD officer David Davenport.

“It also creates an excellent opportunity to bring police and Centralia residents together under positive circumstances.”

It helps build a spirit of cooperation between law enforcement and residents, he said. “It helps us all work together as as team and communicate better,” Davenport said. “It helps us as police officers be more proactive and responsive to peoples’ public safety needs and it helps them sleep better at night, and be more comfortable in their own homes, not having to worry about what is going on outside their doors.”
