School is back in session so it means it’s time for the Edgewater Community Picnic! On Saturday, Aug. 26 come on down to Citizen’s Park (Benton and 24th) starting at 6 p.m. for the Edgewater Community Picnic.

Local businesses will have booths set up in the park and Canino’s Sausage is providing free hot dogs and brats. There will also be jumpy castles and other activities for kids as well as live music.

The Edgewater Police Department will be at the park to answer questions and provide updates on the programs that they offer, including its Nextdoor Police Officer Beat program and how it is being integrated with Neighborhood Watch and National Night Out. The program was selected as one of the top seven new programs in the nation for 2017. EPD will have its speed radar trailer out to test speeds for both baseball throws and soccer kicks.

  National Night Out is a campaign involving citizens, law enforcement agencies, fire departments, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials. The campaign strives to strengthen neighborhood spirit and law enforcement/community partnerships.

  Started in 1984, National Night Out sends a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting crime together with law enforcement. In addition, it helps neighbors get to know each other and have fun doing so.
