The Richmond Hill Police Department expected more than 2,000 people to crowd J.F. Gregory Park on Thursday for the city’s National Night Out for the free hotdogs, sodas and live music. And they weren’t disappointed — the people of Richmond Hill came in droves to enjoy one of the few rainless nights of the summer.
“The parking lot’s full,” said Cpl. Susan Willis, community resource specialist for the RHPD. “We enjoy having the community out here together, and we think that they really appreciate it. It gives everyone a chance to come out, have a good time and meet their neighbors.”
More importantly, they also had the chance to meet their local law enforcement and receive important information about preventing crime and keeping their families safe.
“When people leave here, I hope that they all got a chance to meet their emergency services (personnel) and really understand them for the good citizens that they are,” said Willis.
