The Milford Police Department will be hosting its annual Milford Night Out on Tuesday, August 2 from 6pm to 8pm in Bicentennial Park. The purpose of this event is to heighten awareness of the Milford Police Department’s services and crime prevention and more importantly to continue to build a strong relationship with the Milford Community.

This year will mark the 17th year that the Milford Police Department has participated in the national event, which has been going on for 28 years the first Tuesday of every August. The program aims to promote neighborhood spirit and a police-community partnership in fighting for a safer nation.

Milford School District Resource Office Joey Melvin has been organizing the event this year and stresses the need for police officers to interact with citizens on an incident-free basis.

“I have seen first- hand working in the schools the impact of changing the minds of children about who the police are and what they are here to do,” commented Officer Melvin. “They begin to see that police officers are their friends and here to keep them safe. In the schools, discipline incidents always decrease and even academics begin to improve.”

Officer Melvin has worked in the Milford School District developing programs to teach students about cyberbullying, smart decision making and is also involved in the Milford Motivation Mentoring Program. In the upcoming school year he hopes to present courses on car seat safety, bike registration and pedestrian safety in local neighborhoods.

Milford Police Department’s Milford Night Out will include free music, food, drinks, and emergency vehicles on display. Representatives from the following agencies will have displays: Delaware Dept. of Highway Safety, Crime Stoppers, Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement, Delaware Red Cross, Carlisle Fire Department, University of Delaware Safety Extension, Delaware Attorney General’s Office Child Predator Task Force and Delaware Emergency Management Agency.

Community businesses and individuals looking to volunteer are urged to call Officer Melvin at 302-422-8081.
