It’s one of the City’s favorite events, hosted by those who serve residents 24-hours a day. National Night Out is a nationwide initiative to bring communities together to stand against crime.
Byrnes Mill Police Department works many months to plan the event, open to residents, their family and surrounding communities.
A number of community groups and organizations come together to ensure the success of the event.
“It gives us a chance for Byrnes Mill residents to meet police officers as well as see services available in the area,” explained Police Chief Gary Dougherty.
In addition to meeting Byrnes Mill police officers, people were able to meet members of the High Ridge Fire Protection District, North Jefferson County Ambulance District, Big River Ambulance District, and 9-1-1 Dispatch.
Members of the Jefferson County Drug Coalition were on hand to safely dispose of prescription drugs as well as answer questions.
Some of the favorites included getting close to The Land of Giants Trucks, the dunking booth, and food from Company B BBQ. The City would like to thank everyone who made the event a success from the volunteers, businesses, organizations, and attendees who make it all worthwhile!
