MIDDLETON–The 2020 National Night Out (NNO) event that was to be held in Middleton on August 6 has been canceled due to concerns about safely hosting the event during the COVID-9 pandemic. 

The annual event features food, emergency vehicles and a chance for citizens to get out and meet members of the police department EMS and fire department.

“The cancellation is very unfortunate because it is our largest community policing event throughout the year and has always had excellent attendance.  It allowed a significant portion of our staff to get out and have contact with a large number of community members during a family-friendly event,” said Middleton Police Department Captain Jeremy Geiszler. 

The event dates back to the early 2000s, and many communities across the country hold a variety of events to connect citizens and local law enforcement and emergency agencies.

Geiszler said the police department is eager to continue with community outreach programs like NNO, but for safety reasons it is not possible to continue them during the pandemic.

“These are a big part of Middleton PD and we hope we can get back to our proactive programs sooner than later,” he said.

NNO is scheduled to return in Middleton  in August 2021.
