The Tallahassee Police Department is hosting a barbecue Tuesday evening as part of National Night Out.
Local law enforcement officers are dusting off their aprons—they’ll be cooking hot dogs and hamburgers in Railroad Square and Lafayette Park Tuesday night. Community Relations officer Anitra Highland says the event is aimed at cementing relations with the community and sharing information about crime prevention efforts.
“Well, National Night Out is an annual event," Highland says, "and it’s designed to strengthen the communities with encouraging the neighborhoods to engage in stronger relationships with each other and local law enforcement.”
In addition to food, TPD is partnering with Target to do face painting for kids. The event starts Tuesday night at 6:00.
