National Night Out Bridges Gap Between Community and First Responders
DES MOINES, Iowa — Communities and first responders will come together Tuesday night, outside of an emergency situation.
It’s National Night Out. The purpose is to connect citizens with police officers, deputies, and fire departments to help them build trust so they can work together more effectively.
Several metro communities are participating. There are four events in Des Moines alone.
Windsor Heights, Urbandale, and Altoona are also participating.
