Milford’s Night Out, part of a larger community building campaign known as National Night Out, promotes police-community partnerships is planned for August 1 from 6 to 8 PM in Bicentennial Park. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement by bringing back a sense of community.

“The purpose of the event is to heighten awareness of our services and crime prevention, but more importantly to continue to build a strong relationship in the Milford Community,” Lt. Robert Masten said.

The program began in 1984 on the first Tuesday in August with communities across the country celebrating the event. Dubbed “Milford’s Night Out,” the police department began celebrating the event in 1994. This will be the 27th event since there was no National Night Out in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID.

“Each year we have free food, drinks, a band, emergency vehicles on display and a variety of safety related displays,” Lt. Masten said. “We value our community relationships and enjoy celebrating with them during Milford’s Night Out. The displays also allow for the community to learn about a variety of safety related services provided in our area.”

The public is encouraged to attend the event.
