The agencies are hosting National Night Out events at Beaverton’s City Park and Bethany’s John Marty Park on the evening of Tuesday, Aug. 4.

At the events, law enforcement officials will promote crime prevention tactics and community-police partnerships to keep residents safe.

Both events will begin at 6 p.m.

Beaverton’s event will be across the street from the Beaverton City Library’s main branch and includes K-9 demonstrations and free pizza and ice cream.

The Sheriff’s Office event at Marty Park is located on the Waterhouse Trail, between Northwest Charlais and Joscelyn streets. It is accessible from a trail at the intersection of Northwest 163rd Terrace and Craig Drive.

The national theme is “See Something, Say Something.” Authorities encourage residents to call 9-1-1 when a crime has been committed and to use the county-wide non-emergency number (503-629-0111) for other situations that seem suspicious or troubling.
