Celebrating National Night Out

Thousands of residents got together and enjoyed a sunny evening with neighbors at Bloomington’s 35th annual National Night Out event this summer. Crime Prevention Specialist Katie Chase coordinated 369 parties throughout the city. Police and Fire Department staff visited many of the neighborhood parties to make neighborhood connections, answer questions and give partygoers an inside look into their jobs. Members of the Bloomington Bomb Squad stopped by the party in Hopkins Circle to give a behind the scenes look at the equipment they use to detect and disarm explosive devices.
