BPD’s National Night Out a Success


The Bellefontaine Police Department hosted National Night Out in Brown Park Tuesday evening.

National Night Out is a nationwide event where local law enforcement agencies host an evening full of food, fun, and games for their communities.

The Bellefontaine Police Department Citizens Academy Alumni handled all the details and ran many of the games at the event.

Other community entities and members helped with the event, including Mary Rutan Health and the Bellefontaine Fire Department.

What’s up next for the Bellefontaine Police Department?

On August 19th from 3-6 PM, the Bellefontaine Police Department will host their annual Community Safety Event at Southview Park.

Members of law enforcement will be present, along with first responders, firefighters, and federal partners.

The event is open to the public, and equipment and vehicles will be set up for all to see.

There will be bounce houses and a miniature train for the kids, in addition to games provided by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

Also, that night is the annual K9 Chicken Dinner fundraiser.
