The annual National Night Out was done in the theme of a 1950s Sock Hop.
A few kids hugged him, a few shyed away, but all felt the presence of a new kind of officer during the Ormond Beach Police Department's annual National Night Out.
The "Cop of the Future," was among the many sights and activities local kids and thier families participated in during the departments' effort to promote a closer community and police partnership. Keeping in the 1950s Sock Hop theme, the night featured a classic car show, swing dance demos, face painting, photo ops, raffles, food trucks, and even a lip sync battle.
Annually over 15,000 communities across the United States with over 37 million people in attendence join forces and celebrate National Night Out. The event is done with the effort to enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community.
