Police Deploy Ice Cream to Celebrate National Night Out
The Peoria Police
Department is holding an Open House and Ice Cream Social from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
on Tuesday, Aug. 4, to promote National Night Out, an annual event to promote
crime fighting and community partnership. The Department invites members of the
community to the Public Safety Administration Building, 8351 W. Cinnabar Ave.,
to meet police personnel, see the equipment they use, learn about how to keep a
home safe, meet McGruff “The Crime Dog” and see numerous home safety and
security items. Because of the construction on 83rd Avenue, guests should access
Cinnabar from 85th Avenue. The Peoria Fire Department, Peoria’s three Target
stores and Blue Bell Ice Cream are partners with the Peoria Police Department
for this event.
