In an effort to keep the Bluffton community healthy and prevent spreading the coronavirus, the Bluffton Police Department is postponing its anticipated and popular National Night Out event. It was scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, 2020 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
"This decision was a difficult one, but we believe it is the right one. We are saddened that our community and partner agencies cannot come together this year, but given the national crisis, we must continue to make the safety of the public our priority. We hope, once it is safe for the public to come together, we can hold an event like National Night Out,” said Bluffton Interim Police Chief Scott Chandler.
National Night Out is an annual unique crime/drug prevention, community-building campaign that promotes law enforcement-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make Bluffton a safer, better place to live.
The event includes safety demonstrations from the Bluffton Township Fire District, and education from local businesses and organizations.
