Orange's Night Out Against Crime
Sgt. Phil McMullin has been a police officer for the City of Orange for 16 years. He has worked as a homicide detective, SWAT team member, hostage negotiator, and currently supervises our community outreach unit.
The city of Orange's National Night Out event is an event which brings the community and police together to strengthen our partnership in fighting crime. Which is a great way to get to know the police and fire department.
National Night Out is meant to help people meet their neighbors and for everyone to learn about their City's Public Safety Teams. At the Orange Police National Night Out they also celebrate the 270+ Neighborhood Watch members being watchful throughout Orange and reporting suspicious activity immediately to the police department.
When & Where?
Tuesday, August 7th from 5:30 pm to 8 pm.
