Murrieta residents are invited to meet and communicate with members of the Murrieta Police Department at the annual National Night Out, to be held Aug. 4 from 6-9 p.m. at Town Square Park.

The event is free. According to a news release from the police department, the event is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community relationships, and send a firm message to criminals, letting them know that the Murrieta community is organized and will fight back.

The Murrieta Police Department is collaborating with Target, which is a national corporate sponsor and coordinator of the event. Local Target stores will sponsor a barbecue with free hot dogs and drinks. Target will also have some giveaways sponsored by local businesses and will host a raffle.

In addition, Murrieta police will have several displays and informational booths available for the public, including the department's SWAT team and equipment, the Traffic trailer, Off-Road Enforcement Motorcycles and the Police/Fire Mobile Command Post vehicle. There will be police K-9 demonstrations as well.

There will also be a "kid zone" with children's activities. Public safety departments and service organizations, including the Murrieta Fire Department, Code Enforcement, U.S Border Patrol, California Highway Patrol, Mercy Air Ambulance, the Community Emergency Response Team, Police Volunteer Program, and Michelle's Place, will have displays and personnel on hand to answer questions.

The public is invited to bring lawn chairs and pop-up style shades and picnic in the park. Questions related to the police department's role in this event should be directed to Lt. Tony Conrad at 951-461-6309.
