Night Out Builds Community Unity

The Milford Police Department hosted its annual Community Night Out on Tuesday, August 6 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.

Tuesday’s event marked the 19th year that the Milford Police Department has participated in the national event, which has been going on for 30 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.

“This years night out was again a success,” commented School Resource Officer Joey Melvin. “The weather cleared just in time and we had a great turnout.” 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.

“It was great to see our officers and members of the community conversing,” commented Officer Melvin. “Communication is the foundation of building relationships with those we protect.”
