National Night Out is designed to be a community event that promotes safety. It also carries an anti-crime message.

“It’s an opportunity for our citizens and citizens from the area to meet our local police officers and understand why we do what we do,” Woods said. “It’s a good opportunity  for us to have some interaction with their neighbors. We hope to bring the community out so we can continue to build partnerships.”

Havelock Police Chief G. Wayne Cyrus said residents are crucial to keeping the city safe and free from crime.

“We feel that if we build a strong relationship with the community, together we can accomplish anything,” he said.

Havelock has partnered with Cherry Point for the 17th annual event, with the city’s Community Emergency Response Team as well as the N.C. Marine Fisheries Office and N.C. Highway Patrol participating.

The event will include displays and information from the Cherry Point and Havelock fire departments, including fire and rescue trucks.

The event will also feature a police dog demonstration.
