Hundreds of residents and law enforcement members came together at Winnequah Park in Monona Thursday night all to celebrate National Night Out.
The event gives residents the chance to see what authorities in the area, like K-9 Units and Med Flight crews, do.
"Not everybody knows us, and we don’t know everyone but at least if they were to show up here tonight we may be able to meet each other and if there is an incident or an emergency down the line at least they can put a face with, 'Hey, I saw that person at National Night Out,'" Monona Police Department Community Resource Officer James Reiter said.
This was Monona’s second annual National Night Out. The event has grown since last year, and they plan to have another one next summer.
