‘National Night Out’ events bring officers, communities together
MADISON COUNTY, Tenn. — Communities all over Jackson and Madison County celebrated “National Night Out” Tuesday night.
Attendees enjoyed free food, karate classes, giveaways, games and people even got a chance to take their pictures with special guests.
Organizers said the event could not have come at a better time.
“It’s a bad time to be a police officer, just being real, and there is a lot of crime still going on,” event organizer Kelly Franklin said. “We’ve got resistance with police officers, resistance with the people in the community, and the whole purpose of this is to bring people together.”
Events took place all over the city and county, and law enforcement officers tried to attend as many as they could.
