One Day Only
August 03, 2021

The Wheeling Police Department, along with several community partners will once again take part in National Night Out, set for Tuesday, Aug. 3 from 6-8 p.m. at the Wheeling Park Ice Rink.

National Night Out, now in its 38th year throughout the country, is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.

The event, held on the first Tuesday of August, provides a great opportunity to bring police and the community together under positive circumstances. The relaxed, fun filled ‘night out’ is geared toward enhancing relationship between residents and law enforcement in hopes to make the city’s neighborhoods safer, better places to live.

During the two-hour event, Wheeling Police will showcase its many units and divisions, including WPD’s Explorer Post No. 1, the Neighborhood Assistance Volunteers/Citizens Police Academy and new Victim Advocacy Program. Additionally, WPD’s K9 Unit will offer a brief demonstration.

Snack foods and drinks will be provided as well as several displays and demos from multiple local agencies also will be part of the event.
