The Wilmington Police Department, Clinton County Sheriff’s Office, Wilmington Fire Department and Wilmington Wal-Mart are co-sponsoring the National Night Out 2022 event 5-8 p.m. Tuesday, August 2 at the Wal-Mart at 2825 Progress Way.

National Night Out will also be held locally in Clarksville 5-7 p.m. at the corner of Main and First streets, the sheriff’s office announced.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes strong police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live and work. Together, we are making that happen.

Food, fun and games will be provided and law enforcement and fire department vehicles will be on display at Wal-Mart at 2825 Progress Way.

From time to time, neighbors throughout Wilmington, Clinton County, and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on their front porch lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and law enforcement.

Along with the traditional outside lights and front porch vigils, most communities celebrate National Night Out by hosting block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel, exhibits and more.

For additional information or questions regarding the event, please contact Chief Ron Fithen with the Wilmington Police Department at [email protected] or Deputy David Boris with the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office at [email protected]

If any Clinton County business would like to be a co-sponsor of this event, please contact the Wilmington Police Department.

Neighborhoods throughout the county are invited to join over 38 million neighbors across 16,000 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide.

National Night Out is nationally sponsored by NATW, Ring, Starbucks, Associa, FirstNet, Academy Sports & Outdoors, and REELZ.
