Notre Dame College police are connecting with community as part of a national tribute to law enforcement and emergency services.
The College Police Department will join the City of South Euclid Bexley Bash featuring the National Night Out Safety Commemoration. The event on Tuesday, August 2, at 6 p.m. in Bexley Park, 1630 Wrenford Road in South Euclid will feature security forces from the city, too.
During National Night Out, parents and their children have an opportunity to see police squad cars and various emergency response vehicles. They can learn about a wide variety of safety topics and participate in interactive family activities. Police public safety partners from government, nonprofit and business sectors also participate.
National Night Out helps law enforcement and public safety departments build relationships with residents and build safter neighborhoods. It also offers an opportunity for citizens to reflect on community connections and the responsibilities people have to each other.
Notre Dame recently partnered with Lyndhurst forces to update campus police cruisers. At least one is expected to be on display at the event.
“They are a symbol to you students and visitors to campus of our concern about safety and security on campus,” said Notre Dame College President J. Michael Pressimone. “While this is a pretty safe place in general and a pretty good neighborhood, we want to make sure that we have the right people in place to take care of our students, our faculty, our staff, and visitors to the campus.”
National Night Out annually takes place on the first Tuesday in August. Texas and some other states may celebrate the first Tuesday in October.
Bexley Bash is an annual South Euclid community event that takes place in Bexley Park and features live performances, fare from local food vendors and health and safety tips, among other activities for all ages.
