BROWNSBURG, Ind. (WISH) — The Brownsburg Police Department is hosting one of about two dozen National Night Out events happening in central Indiana on Tuesday night.

National Night Out is a chance for community members to connect with police to show unity in the fight against crime.

In Brownsburg, the police chief says his main focus is the fight against the heroin epidemic in Hendricks County and surrounding areas.

“Considering the current climate of our Country, I want to create an opportunity for our community to ban together rather than be divided. It is time for local government to partner with our citizens and wage a war against the disease of addiction and our very deadly and present heroin epidemic. Join us on August 4th, to take the pledge,” Chief Michael Dove said.

The event in Brownsburg will offer free hot dogs, watermelon, Kids Identification by the Kids BMV, a photo booth, bounce houses and much more. The police department is also collecting coats, hats, scarves and mittens in all sizes. The winter clothing will be donated and handed out to those in need at the Old St. Malachy School in Brownsburg on Saturday, October 17 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

National Night Out in Brownsburg begins at 5 p.m. and continue until 9 p.m. at the Town Greens at 61 N. Green Street.
