Mayor Greg Fischer and Police Chief Steve Conrad are inviting the public to join in on the annual National Night Out events being held in the police divisions around Metro Louisville on Tuesday night.

This year’s theme for the event is IncLOUsive City – promoting safe neighborhoods through inclusiveness. Events will include opportunities to interact with officers, refreshments, games and public safety information.

“Making this city safer is a joint effort between police officers and the neighborhoods they patrol,” Chief Conrad said. “National Night Out is our chance each year to come together to celebrate our efforts and continuing building the relationships that make us a better city.”

From 2013 to 2017, Louisville Metro has been selected as a national award winner for its outstanding participation in the annual National Night Out events held throughout our city. The National Association of Town Watch evaluates entries based on attendance, corporate sponsorships, crime prevention collaborations between police and community members, and ongoing outreach efforts.

It is an honor for LMPD to be recognized, but the Mayor and Chief stressed that could not have been done it without every citizen who takes a stance on crime prevention in their community.

“I hope people will join me Tuesday night in stopping by one or more of our National Night Out events,” said Mayor Fischer. “This city shows over and over again how working together for safer neighborhoods pays off, so let’s use Tuesday to recommit ourselves to those efforts.”

  • 1st Division: 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Baxter Park, Baxter Community Center, 1125 Cedar Court
