National Night Out returns to Vail Valley on Tuesday

AVON — It is time again to come out and get to know members of the Avon Police Department during Eagle County’s annual National Night Out celebration Tuesday.

Police say the annual event is a key component in building the relationship between law enforcement agencies and the communities in Eagle County. Events include games, bouncy castles, demonstrations, free food and activities.

National Night Out was developed with an emphasis on the importance of police-community partnerships. At each location information will be available on how to get involved with local police departments as a volunteer, attend a citizen’s police academy or simply provide feedback.

For more information on the Avon Police Department’s involvement in Eagle County’s National Night Out events, contact officer Toby Baldwin, or 970-748-4040.

Here’s information on National Night Out events in the rest of the Vail Valley:
