Join us for National Night Out: Tuesday, August 1 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Please join our Davidson Police Department on Tuesday, August 1 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the field at the Ada Jenkins Center (212 Gamble Street) to celebrate National Night Out. The event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available.


National Night Out is an annual crime prevention and community-building event, sponsored by the Davidson Police Department to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-resident partnerships, and neighborhood cohesiveness.


The Brickhouse Tavern is providing hot dogs and hamburgers and Harris Teeter and other local businesses are supplying water. We encourage Davidson residents and employees to attend and bring a side dish or dessert to share.


We will have a tent with tables and chairs so that attendees are comfortable and have plenty of seating. We will also have a dunking booth, face painting, a bounce house, and other activities for children. The Davidson Police Department will distribute information and items from the Watch for Me NC initiative to educate citizens about pedestrian safety.


“We value our partnership with everyone in Davidson who works with us to keep our town the safe place that it is to work, live, and raise a family,” said Davidson Police Captain Steve Ingram. “This year we hope people from all parts of Davidson will join us to celebrate our wonderful community and meet all of our officers, including our new police chief, Penny Dunn.”


A variety of groups will be present to educate our citizens: North Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers, Mecklenburg County’s District Attorney’s office, MEDIC, Mental Health Association, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department Communications, Safe Alliance, Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office, Davidson Fire Department (with a fire truck), and CharMeck Alerts.
