The Laramie County Sheriff's Office will host its first-ever National Night Out event on Tuesday, Aug. 1, the agency announced Friday.

Just like the Cheyenne Police Department's annual Neighborhood Night Out event, the community-building campaign is designed to bring neighbors, businesses, and law enforcement together in partnership against crime in Laramie County.

"Sheriff Kozak brought this tradition to Cheyenne when he became the Chief of Police in 2010 and now wants to expand the program into the County neighborhoods," Public Information Officer Brandon Warner said in a press release.

"We decided to hold the event at the same time as the National event, which is August 1st, so we do not interfere with the Neighborhood Night Out parties being held in the City of Cheyenne on July 13th," Warner added.

Warner says businesses and people are sponsoring cookouts in celebration of National Night Out, and thus far, the following parties are being planned:

  • Town of Burns at the Rustic Diner
  • Little Bear Inn Steakhouse
  • 505 Williams (sponsored by Walmart)
  • HealthWorks 2508 East Fox Farm Rd

"Attending or hosting one of these events is a great way to get to know others in your area and the deputies that serve our community," said Warner.

"If you’re interested in hosting an event, please contact us," Warner added. "We will be posting details on National Night Out events in Laramie County on the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page as plans are finalized."

"Let’s work together to prevent crime and to make Laramie County a better place to live," said Warner.
