MPD to Host Community Night Out


The Milford Police Department’s Community Policing Unit is sponsoring the 25th annual “Milford’s Night Out” celebration in Milford on Tuesday, August 6th. The event will be held at Bicentennial Park in Milford from 6 to 8pm and feature the Indian River Band, formerly Clifford Keith. There will be free food, drinks and emergency vehicles on display.
The purpose of this event is to heighten awareness of our services and crime prevention, but more importantly to continue to build a strong relationship with the Milford Community. “This event is essential for us to continue on building on our great relationship with the community,” said Sergeant Robert W. Masten of the Milford Police Department. “In addition to sharing information about Milford Police Department’s services, we have area organizations on hand that provide valuable information that we hope helps people with their daily activities.”

Some of this year’s participants include Carlisle Fire Company, Houston VFC, Memorial VFC, Division Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement, WSFS Bank, Delaware Criminal Justice Information System (DELJIS), Delaware Natural Resources Police, Sussex County EOC, Bayhealth, Community Legal Aid, Brandywine Counseling, City of Milford Public Works, Representative Shupe, Delaware Health and Social Services, Domestic Violence Task Force, Delaware Office of Highway Safety, WSFS Bank Shred Truck, and Sussex County EMS.
“There is a wide variety of vendors who attend this event annually and we hope people take advantage of the great information provided,” said Masten. “The vendors provide valuable safety related information, as well as great information on a wide variety of services offered to the public.”

This years menu includes chicken provided by Mountaire Farms prepared by Greenwood Volunteer Fire Company and Pizza provided by Grotto Pizza; drinks provided by Pepsi Bottling Ventures and dessert from Vanderwende’s Ice Cream Truck.

“We hope people leave having enjoyed time spent with their neighbors and area first responders,” Masten stated. “We also hope the things learned from the participating vendors will improve the quality of live for our citizens.”
