The Chief's Corner
by Frank Mooney

The Friona Police Department will be hosting National Night Out on October 2, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Friona Community Center on Hwy. 214 north of Hwy. 60.

National Night Out is a nationwide effort to being neighbors closer together and combat crime and drug use. We have invited several police departments including Hereford, Muleshoe, Parmer County Sheriff’s Office, and DPS to attend, as well as a med evac helicopter. Free child fingerprinting will be available.

The Friona Fire Department will be grilling free hamburgers and free drinks will be available. Members of other community groups will be present promoting safety in the community. The Panhandle Council of Governments will be presenting the local Community Emergency Response trailer and the “Amby” robot to welcome the local children. Free bounce houses will be available for the children.

This will be a fun event to help fight crime and drug use in the local area and bring the community closer together to make the community safer.
