DOVER - Dover Police announced on Monday they will be participating in National Night Out today with displays of special police vehicle and free burgers and dogs provided by the Dover Moose.
The event will take place at the police station located at 46 Chestnut St. 5-7 p.m. and is free to the public.
National Night Out is a time for community members to meet with police officers, discuss issues, learn what the police do and unite with the common goal of crime prevention and safety.
The public will be able to take tours of the station and see a variety of displays around the building including some of the specialized equipment and vehicles that the police use.
"The Dover Police Department recognizes the importance of getting to know the members of our community and the value of positive police-community partnerships. National Night Out is an excellent opportunity for police officers and community members to meet and interact. This goes a long way toward solving community problems together," said Chief William Breault.
The Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 443 will be outside the station cooking burgers and hot dogs for the public. Some displays will be outside the building providing information on health and safety including the Dover Coalition for Youth and Dover Crimeline.
