Avon, CO – The Avon Police Department is excited to announce their participation in the annual National Night Out campaign on Tuesday, August 2, 2016.
Join your Eagle County Law Enforcement agencies at the National Night Out events on August 2nd to enhance the relationships between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. This community event is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness and to provide an opportunity to promote and celebrate police-community partnerships in crime prevention efforts.

Residents in neighborhoods throughout Eagle County and across the nation are urged to participate and spend the evening outside with friends and neighbors.
Agencies throughout Eagle County will be hosting a variety of neighborhood events, such as block parties, barbeques and ice cream socials.
