The Dubuque Police Department is inviting community members to join them for National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2, from 6-8 p.m. at Jackson Park (1500 Main St.) this year.

National Night Out is an annual crime prevention event that promotes police-community partnerships, safety, and neighborhood unity. This will be the 12th consecutive year the Dubuque Police Department has participated in National Night Out, educating residents on anti-crime programs and how they can make Dubuque a safer, better place to live.

This free event includes food, yard games, a bounce house, and other fun for the whole family to enjoy. Dubuque Police and Dubuque Fire Department vehicles will be displayed for attendees to view up close and personal.

The VNA will be offering COVID vaccines to anyone 12 years of age or older (an adult must accompany minors).

National Night Out supports the Dubuque Police Departments' community-oriented policing initiative of working with Dubuque organizations and residents to find creative ways to solve the problems of crime. For more information, visit
