2020 is a year we would all like to forget. Covid-19 shutdowns caused businesses to close, events to be cancelled, and government services to slow down if not stop altogether.
With Governor Inslee’s statewide reopening on June 30, 2021, comes renewed business activities, in-person teaching at schools, and restarted community events.
On Tuesday, August 3rd, law enforcement and fire agencies across the state are rebooting National Night Out, a community event focused on improving the relationships between residents and law enforcement.
The Mill Creek Police Department and the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office will both be holding National Night out events this Tuesday evening, August 3rd.
The Mill Creek National Night Out event will be held at Cougar Park from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Police officers and Snohomish Regional Fire & Rescue first responders will be there to join in family fun.
Willis Tucker Park is the venue for the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office National Night Out. They plan to host the community from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.
The Mill Creek Police Department is also kickstarting a neighborhood watch program called Dog Walker Watch with a free training class for interested community members.
Participants will learn how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity while out walking their dog. Please click on the above link to find out more and to pre-register for this free class.
