Representatives from the police and , South East Regional Emergency Services Authority and Crime Stoppers met with families and shared information about keeping safe in a fun environment.
The event was created three years ago after St. Clair Shores community resource officer Cherie Mascarello, and Police Chaplain James Friedman, decided to move up the date of the National Night Out crime prevention event from August to the begining of summer vacation.
Mascarello said she and Friedman thought the earlier date would help the community gather for a fun event while sharing important public safety information.
In addition to the safety information, music was provided Joe Evangelista, known as DJ Loco Joe, and food by National Coney Island.
