The Peoria Police Department is encouraging our community members to join us for this year’s National Night Out on Aug. 7. Local Target stores are partnering in the celebration to promote community involvement and crime prevention.

The events give the community a chance to meet and interact with police officers while also getting an up-close look at SWAT robots, police motorcycles, and various police vehicles (displays vary at each store). Those who attend the events can also learn ways to keep their homes and family safe, and talk one-on-one with police officers.

This year’s events will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will be held at three local Target stores.
