HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Police officers are hoping residents are going to spend a “night out” with them on Tuesday - not in handcuffs, but having fun.

Tuesday is the annual community get-together called National Night Out, an event that departments across the country are participating in.

In Horry County, three departments are teaming up to put on a big party that will reach both kids and adults: the Horry County Police Department; the Conway Police Department; and the Horry County Sheriff’s Office. There will be games and other fun things to do.

The event is also about education; officers and deputies say they want to connect with youth and with everyone in a non-threatening environment.

They want children to feel comfortable around officers, and they want to answer any questions adults might have.

Horry County’s National Night Out will begin at 6 p.m., at the Homewood Elementary School parking lot, which is located at 108 N. Clemson Cir., in Conway.

Below is a list of all local agencies participating in the national event:

  • Horry County Police/Conway Police/Horry County Sheriff’s Office – more details here 
  • Florence County Sheriff’s Office – more details here 
  • Fairmont, North Carolina – more details here

Tune in Tuesday to WMBF News Today beginning at 5 a.m. for more details on the local National Night Out.
