Montrose, CO — The Montrose Police Department is once again participating in the annual National Night Out initiative and will be hosting a community celebration Tuesday, August 1, in front of the Montrose Police Department on South First Street downtown.
The event will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. in both Centennial Plaza and the adjoining 400 block of South First Street following the closure of the roadway. The Montrose Police Department will be serving hot dogs and drinks and will have officers and department staff hosting several activities for families and children.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community collaboration and neighborhood camaraderie to make local neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.
Montrose Police Commander Larry Witte said the department looks forward to hosting the event to enhance relationships between neighbors and law enforcement officers while embracing the spirit of the Montrose community.
“National Night Out is a community-building campaign that strengthens police and community partnerships,” Witte said. “It’s always a fun evening that we look forward to every year.”
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states, U.S. territories, and military bases worldwide on the first Tuesday in August.
The Montrose Police Department participates along with law enforcement agencies from across the Western Slope to host National Night Out each August.
