National Night Out is an annual campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and camaraderie in neighborhoods to establish a better sense of community. Organizers say it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
The local National Night Out event was held Tuesday evening at the Carbon County fairgrounds in conjunction Neighborhood Watch and local Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT), with participation of local law enforcement agencies, State Division of Forestry and Fire, and the Price fire department.
Free hot dogs and drinks were served, and other attractions included balloons and games for children, a bounce house and a hanging doughnut eating contest.
Kids and adults also had the opportunity to get a close look at the Carbon County sheriff’s office mobile command post, police cruisers, fire engines, and interact with the officers and firefighters.
Carbon County CERT coordinator Amy Jones said it was a first for Carbon County. She hopes to make it an annual event on the first Tuesday of August. Jones said, “I’m just grateful for all of the support. It’s a great community in the county. You have to start small and hopefully it will grow year to year.” 
Sheriff Jeff Wood added, “It’s a good opportunity for the community to get together and see what they have with their EMS and law enforcement, the community programs that are available, and hopefully get people involved.”
