National Night Out Deemed a Success!  

On behalf of the men and women of the Prince George County Police Department, we want to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who participated with National Night Out. The show of support to promote awareness, safety, and neighborhood unity was present throughout the night.  As it relates to public safety, the importance of police-community relationships and citizen involvement cannot be overstated.  

On August 6th, we enjoyed the participation from thirty-one sites throughout the County. We estimated this year’s attendance at 2,352 compared to 2,140 last year. To the many individuals, businesses, community groups, church congregations, and local government partners, thank you for your show of support. You helped make the night a success. 

The spirit of neighborhood and partnership was quite evident throughout the evening. The display of neighbors coming together highlights the qualities of our community; Prince George County is a special place to live, work, and raise a family.

Again, thank you to everyone who made this night special.
