Casper Police connects with community at “National Night Out”
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - If you stopped by David Street Station Tuesday evening, not only was the summer market going on, but Casper Police held its “National Night Out.” The event is a way for Casper Police to connect with the community it serves and protects.
“Getting to be able to come out here and not be tied to the radio, and not be tied to the cellphone, and not have to worry about the difficulties that come with being in law enforcement, and just getting to interact with people, I mean it’s one of the few truly joyous things that we get to do,” said Casper Police Lt. Danny Dundas.
Hats, stickers and donuts were handed out, kids climbed on CPD’s new truck and motorcycles, and community members came out to say thank you.
Dundy said they are lucky to have so much support in Casper, because it’s not like that everywhere. He also said right now, it’s important to strengthen community relationships.
“Yes we police here but we also live here and we’re members of the community too. It’s not an us versus them, it’s us with them, and so law enforcement and the community working together, that’s what makes Casper such a great place to live,” said Dundy.
Casper Police officers enjoy being able to connect with the community any chance they get.
