News release from Alderman Jim Bohl

Police and neighbors will get together for an evening of family-friendly fun, activities and food in the Milwaukee Police Department’s 7th District National Night Out event on Thursday, August 6 in Kops Park.

Alderman Jim Bohl will join Mayor Tom Barrett in leading a 1.4-mile neighborhood safety walk, Alderman Bohl said, as a part of the mayor’s “Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days” challenge—a citywide effort to encourage Milwaukee residents to lead a more active lifestyle and implement physical activity into their daily routines.

“Every day, Milwaukee’s police officers and firefighters put themselves in harm’s way to protect the public,” Alderman Bohl said. “National Night Out is a great way to interact with our city’s finest, spend time with neighbors and make our community a safer place in which to live.”

National Night Out began in 1984 to promote safe neighborhoods, and now includes more than 35 million people across all 50 states. The local event is sponsored by the Kops Park and Cooper Park neighborhood groups, with the participation of officers from Milwaukee Police District Seven.

The event will kick off Thursday, Aug. 6, 6:00 p.m. at Kops Park (corner of W. Concordia Avenue and N. 86th Street). Mayor Barrett and Alderman Bohl’s neighborhood safety walk with residents will begin at 6:30 p.m., encompassing a 1.4-mile loop to Cooper Park and back.
