The Clermont Police Department hosted the annual National Night Out (NNO) at Waterfront Park, 300 Third Street, Clermont on Tuesday, October 3rd, complete with law enforcement and public safety displays from agencies throughout Lake County and West Orange County areas.

The police department provided a scaled-down version of the SWAT Team obstacle and training course fit for the little adventure seekers who were captivated by the array of police vehicles, fire engines and law enforcement marine patrol vessels.

The NNO is an annual community-building campaign, that began in 1984, with the intention of promoting police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. Millions of neighbors take part in NNO across thousands of communities from all fifty states and U.S. territories while providing a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

The Clermont Police Department hosts several community-based events throughout the year to build and maintain positive interactions and relationships within the community that they serve.

“National Night Out” was introduced nearly 40 years ago and remains a favorite Clermont event that provides great fun and another opportunity for the community to get to know the law enforcement officers who protect and serve.
