National Night Out in Brookville is Aug 3

BROOKVILLE, Ind. — The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department will host National Night out on August 3 from 5-7 p.m. at the Brookville Aquatic Center.

The event includes a free cookout by area law enforcement, as well as free admission to the Brookville Aquatic Center during that time, which is provided by Stayin’ Alive LLC.

The Sheriff’s Department, in partnership with Stayin’ Alive, first participated in National Night Out in the late 2000’s. At that time, the event was held in Brookville, at the Heap Memorial Pool and upper town park area. In 2012, F.C.S.D. began alternating the annual event around the various Franklin County communities, including Laurel, Oldenburg, Cedar Grove, New Trenton, Andersonville, Blooming Grove, Metamora and Mt. Carmel. The decision to bring National Night Out back to Brookville, coincides with the opening of the new Aquatic Center earlier this summer.

National Night Out is an annual event that happens nationwide to build stronger ties between police departments and community members.
