"It's so important for police and communities to come together, for our residents to know the police who are patrolling their neighborhoods," said Cincinnati Police Captain Martin Mack, commander of District 4.
"This is a great opportunity to come and meet a number of officers from the district. There's 10 neighborhoods within District 4, so we are asking everyone in the neighborhoods to come out."
This year, District 4's National Night Out Event will run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Roselawn Park, 2026 E. Seymour Ave.
Children who come out to the event will receive free school supplies (limited supplies, may run out).
"Since we are now located in the Roselawn community with our Reds Youth Academy it's a great way to get people to the academy, to get people to Roselawn Park and have kids see what we're all about, teaching them the game of baseball," said Jerome Wright of Reds Community Foundation.
"We'll have mascots, we'll have fireworks, we'll have bouncy houses, book bag giveaways, plenty of things for the kids to get engaged."
There will be free food, entertainment, fun and games for all, coupons and giveaways and door prizes.
The response to National Night Out events over the years has been very positive, Captain Mack said.
"There's a lot of interaction between police and young people and the youth that's in the neighborhoods. There's also a lot of partnerships that are built because of relationships that come to be on National Night Out."
Wright added: "Our goal is to just get everybody excited, get everybody a safe place to play and make them feel like the Reds Youth Academy is part of their community and anyone can use it."
