The Margate Police Department is hosting its Thirteenth Annual National Night Out (NNO) at the Margate Sports Complex, located on Banks Roads between Copans Road and Coconut Creek Parkway.

National Night Out Against Crime is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police community partnerships; and to send a message to criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime.
We will have free hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, refreshments and carnival rides for the kids. Children can have a free photo taken on a Margate Police motorcycle (complements’ of Best Buy of Margate) and meet The Miami Marlins’ “Billy the Marlin”.
