MELROSE — Chief Michael Lyle announces that the Melrose Police Department, in conjunction with the Melrose Fire Department, is participating in National Night Out and encourages community members to attend.

National Night Out will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 6, from 6-8 p.m. at Dills Court, the parking lot opposite 56 West Foster St. 

Held on the first Tuesday in August, National Night Out is a nationwide campaign designed to strengthen the relationship between police and fire officials and residents in order to foster partnerships and improve safety in neighborhoods.

This year, in partnership with the Melrose Fire Department, Melrose Police will sponsor a “touch a truck” event and will have police and fire equipment, along with utility vehicles from many neighboring businesses on site.

“Every year we enjoy getting to interact with residents in a relaxed and fun environment,” Chief Lyle said. “We’re excited to once again get together with members from the fire department to hold this annual event.”

National Night Out is family-friendly and free to attend. Refreshments will be provided complimentary of LCM Plus.
