Oregon City police to host first National Night Out since 2019
Oregon City police officers are inviting citizens to an evening of family-friendly activities at National Night Out from 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2, at the End of the Oregon Trail, 1726 Washington St.
National Night Out is a nationwide nonprofit organization's community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie, with events typically held annually.
OCPD's last National Night Out was held in 2019. This year's event will include activities such as a kids' bike rodeo, Kona Ice and live music by the band Remedy.
Clackamas Fire District personnel will join OCPD officers and their canine companions who sniff out suspects and contraband. The canine officers are expected to be accepting pets from kids while attending this National Night Out event.
OCPD Capt. Shaun Davis said that the police department is encouraging kids to come with their bicycles to learn about bike safety and go through a bike course.
"The bicycle rodeo will include a course consisting of a series of skills stations directly related to everyday bicycling situations," Davis said.
