From the Cheyenne Police Department: On the evening of July 14th, 2015, the Cheyenne Police Department will host the 6th annual Neighborhood Night Out; a multiple block party event designed to bring neighbors, businesses and police together to recognize and prevent crime in our community.

“Rain or Shine,” the Police will close streets in multiple neighborhoods so residents can have barbecues, entertainment and fun as they meet each other and Cheyenne police officers. SWAT team members, K-9 units, and motorcycles will tour the city neighborhoods demonstrating their special skills and equipment. Neighborhood “Captains” will plan and organize specific block parties with the Police Department.

All Food and entertainment are planned and provided by the neighborhood residents with the help of sponsoring Cheyenne businesses, churches and specialty groups.

This is not a fund raiser or charity; it’s an opportunity to get out of your house and meet your cops and neighbors!

In my experience, we have a fine police department who seem to be doing a good job, so lets tell them how much we appreciate them and let them get to know who they serve.
