Sheriff Jeff Norlin announces that the Meeker County Sheriff's Office and local fire departments will be hosting National Night Out events at the Dassel Fire Department, Grove City Fire Department, and Watkins Fire Department from 4-8 p.m. this Tuesday, Aug. 7. Free hotdogs and juice will be served.
Meeker County Deputy Reggie Sandstrom and K-9 Titan will be doing apprehension demonstrations. K-9 Titan is a five-year-old German shepherd, from the Czech Republic, that has been a member of the Sheriff's Office since 2008. Deputy Sandstrom and K-9 Titan have gone through extensive training, and continue to train, in the areas of apprehension and narcotic detection. Other activities will include fingerprinting children at each location and meeting Meeker County Posse members and Reserve Deputies.
National Night Out is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support for local anticrime programs, and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships. National Night Out is also designed to send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and willing to help fight crime.
Sheriff Jeff Norlin thanks all of the volunteers that donate their time to make National Night Out possible. He also thanks McDonalds of Litchfield, and the VFW of Litchfield for the donation of the food.
Come out and meet your local deputies, reserve deputies, posse members, and fire department members. Tour the fire departments and check out the patrol cars and fire trucks.
