National Night Out Draws Enormous Crowd And Promotes Community Relations

Charles City, Iowa – It was a packed Central Park last night for National Night Out.

Charles City Officer Duane Ollendick says the crowd size surprised him.


He organized the event between several other law enforcement agencies and gathered businesses to sponsor the event.  Over 200 backpacks full of school supplies were given away within the first hour. The goal of national night out is to improve community and law enforcement relations.  


Charles City resident James Bluhm has lived here all his life and he says this has even helped him get to know more law enforcement.
