Local police to present National Night Out fairs Tuesday

Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley police officers will be out in force in their respective cities Tuesday evening, but it won’t be for crimefighting in the traditional sense.

Each department will join National Night Out festivities with events to educate the public about crime prevention and provide a behind-the-scenes look at how police departments operate.

National Night Out is observed annually around the country to help police build positive relationships with residents.

Newport Beach police will hold a safety fair with free food, displays from the crime scene investigation, SWAT, K-9, animal control, horseback and community emergency response units, among others. There also will be games, face painting and a bounce house. The fair will be from 4 to 7 p.m. at Bonita Canyon Sports Park, 1990 Ford Road.
