The Peoria Police Department and Target Stores Partner For National Night Out
The Peoria Police Department is encouraging our media partners to join us for this year’s National Night Out on August 4, 2015. Our local Target stores are partnering in this celebration to promote community involvement and crime prevention.
The events give our community a chance to meet and interact with our officers while getting a up-close look at SWAT robots, patrol vehicles and police motorcycles. Those attending can also learn ways to keep their homes and family safe, and talk one-on-one with their area police officers.
This year’s events will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at three local Target stores. These events will offer plenty of video opportunities and representatives from both Target and the police department will available for interviews at the Lake Pleasant location.
