On Tuesday, August 1, the Algonquin Police Department will bring their annual National Night Out celebration to the Harnish Main Library. From 4 to 7pm, residents can participate in hourly raffles, meet with APD personnel, visit with rescue and comfort dogs from the Illinois/Wisconsin Search and Rescue Dog Team, and get a good view of high-tech emergency response vehicles. Kids will enjoy face painting, a “Cookies with a Cop” storytime, and a “Dunk-a-Cop” dunk tank. Grilled hot dogs will be served from 5 to 7pm.
National Night Out is an annual event promoting police-community partnerships and community camaraderie. Neighbors participate from thousands of communities across the United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
