For more than 10 years, the Broomfield Police Department has hosted National Night Out at Commons Park. Law enforcement and other safety officials in the city will come out to chat and take part in fun activities with families.

“It’s a time for us as police officers and law enforcement to come out and interact with our community,” explained Rachel Welte with the Broomfield Police Department. “So we’ll talk about safety, build camaraderie but also bring out residents as an extension of neighborhood watch.”
