National Night Out


Bellefontaine’s ninth consecutive National Night Out will take place Tuesday, August 1st from 6-8 PM in Brown Park.

The event, meant to connect communities to their law enforcement agencies, has been curated by the Bellefontaine Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, and all are invited to attend.

There will be food, music, games, and events for both kids and adults and police vehicles for attendants to see.

Previous years’ activities include tug-of-war and card games.

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.

Tickets for the dinner are available until August 11th and can be purchased at the Bellefontaine Police Department for $15.

All proceeds will go to support the K9 unit.
