Lowcountry law enforcement agencies participate in ‘National Night Out’, Mount Pleasant cancels
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - The Mount Pleasant Police Department and several other Lowcountry law enforcement are holding their National Night Out events.
Agencies say many of the National Nights Out were rescheduled from August because of severe weather.
The North Charleston, Mount Pleasant and Goose Creek Police Departments along with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office will all hold their rescheduled events on Tuesday.
The North Charleston Police Department says their event will be held at Park Circle from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday. They say there will be vendors and entertainment.
North Charleston Police Department Representative Harvey Jacobs says between 50 and 60 officers are planning to attend the event Tuesday night.
This event is an opportunity for the community to get to know the men and women wearing uniforms and Jacobs says it often draws in upwards of one thousand people. Jacobs says community support is vital in making sure officers can effectively do their jobs.
In addition to the food and games, Jacobs says this year the department is bringing in the Blood Connection to give people the opportunity to donate blood at the events. Specialized units will also be on display including SWAT trucks, K9 demonstrations, Barbour patrol boats and more, Jacobs said.
The Mount Pleasant Police Department says they have canceled their rescheduled National Night Out. It was originally rescheduled for Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park, but that will no longer happen.
