Hoffman Estates is supporting two National Night Out events on Tuesday, Aug. 6.
National Night Out is an opportunity for neighbors to get together to promote safer streets. It is used to strengthen police and community partnerships and heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention.
From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. the Barrington Square neighborhood association is hosting a gathering at their clubhouse, 1800 Williamsburg Drive, that will include visits from representatives of the Chicago Slaughter indoor football team and the Chicago Soul indoor soccer team. Fire and police vehicles will also be on display.
A second, smaller gathering hosted by Hoffman Estates Police Sgt. Mark Mueller will take place from 8 to 9:30 p.m. at Sycamore Park, 450 Hillcrest Blvd. Representatives from the Hoffman Estates Target store will host activities and bring giveaways to both events.
