Simpsonville, SC – The Simpsonville Police Department is joining communities across the country in celebrating National Night Out on Tuesday, August 1 from 6:00-8:00 pm at City Park. We invite our neighbors and friends to come out for fun, food, and camaraderie with the Simpsonville Police Department.
This year we are teaming up with several businesses and organizations for a free, family-friendly event. Activities included several inflatables, and games. Kids and parents alike will be able to sit in the driver’s seat of a SPD police cruiser or Simpsonville Fire Truck, try on a Kevlar vest, and learn more about law enforcement in our community. Come hungry! Members of the SPD family will be cooking out!
“National Night Out is an opportunity for citizens to interact with officers in a relaxed environment. Now more than ever, we wanted to show the community the human side of law enforcement,” said Lieutenant Timmie Williams.
