Letter to the Editor: National Night Out


On Aug. 7, the Lord Fairfax Community College Police Department hosted its first National Night Out in partnership with the police departments of Middletown and Stephens City.

The southern end of Frederick County has not had its own event, so this gave all of us who live in the region an opportunity to participate. The event was a fun night for families and any citizens to speak with officers, see public safety apparatus up close, watch demonstrations and enjoy good food.

Thanks to Chief Jay Roy for organizing this event and for Middletown and Stephens City for joining! For a first-time event, it was well attended even with the questionable weather – which cleared up enough for the event and for the PHI medical helicopter to make an appearance! I hope these groups will work together to make this an annual event.
