In addition, HPD’s K-9 officers will show off their skill with demonstrations of canine and human teamwork.
During the event, guests will connect with community resources the Homestead Police Department offers. The Homestead Police Athletic League is a youth crime prevention program geared towards involving youth in athletics and academics. The Homestead Police Explorers program encourages young minds to explore the law enforcement career path. Start Off Smart, a socials service non-profit housed within HPD, assists victims of violence.
The annual National Night Out brings communities across the country together by increasing Neighborhood Watch participation and promoting the work that police, residents, and businesses do together to make neighborhoods safer and better places to live.
