CAMP VERDE - Aug. 6, the Town of Camp Verde will celebrate its 10th National Night Out.

From 5:30 to 8 p.m., the 30th annual National Night Out event will be held at the soccer field behind Town Hall, located off of Hollamon and Wood streets.

The event is free.

National Night Out began as an effort to promote the Block Watch program. The Camp Verde Marshal's Office, along with various law enforcement agencies throughout Yavapai County will take part in the celebration.

CVMO encourages residents of Camp Verde and its neighboring towns to come out and to interact with officers from the Department of Public Safety, U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Marshal's Office, Yavapai-Apache Tribal Police and Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

"This is an opportunity for the community to come out and interact with law enforcement in a positive way," says Deputy Dave Freeman.

CVMO Marshal Nancy Gardner, Commander Bruce Girnt, Claymore the K-9 officer and members of the Verde Valley Regional SWAT Team will also be on hand.

Camp Verde Kiwanis, Cliff Castle Casino and Johnny Rockets will sponsor the event, providing hamburgers, hot dogs, sodas, chips and ice cream free to the public. Camp Verde Town Manager Russ Martin will help tend to the grill.

"This is also a good opportunity to meet the Council members, because they'll be here, too," Freeman says.

Freeman has been participating in National Night Out for the past nine years, the last two, as he says, with "everything on my shoulders." Which is fine by him.

"I really like doing community service stuff," Freeman says. "Anything I can do to help out. Anytime we have a positive interaction with the public is good."

Freeman's wife Regina, as well as two of the family's four children, 14-year-old Kelsea and 16-year-old Kyle, will also participate in the event. Regina is a member of the Volunteers in Policing, also known as the VIP program.

Betty Gatchell, a VIP member, says that National Night Out allows children a chance to see "that policemen are good guys, too. That, to me, is the most important part of it."

For more information, contact Deputy David Freeman at the Camp Verde Marshal's Office, 567-6621.
