SHASTA AND TEHAMA COUNTY, CALIF - From Red Bluff to Anderson to all across the nation, law enforcement officials took part in the National Night Out event to bring community members and law enforcement officials closer together.
“Come and meet us. It’s not every day that they get to see us in a good side and serving root beer floats and just interacting,” said Red Bluff police officer Ronald Johnson.
In the North State, more than 20 different events were held some sharing ice cream, while others had food and stickers.
But for some children, it was all about meeting their heroes.
“ They have dogs in their cars and they have really cool badges,” said 6-year-old Catalina Rosario.
“Because they protect the city,” said 8-year-old Brayden Rogers.
As children admired the cars, trucks, and badges, parents took the time to make this an educational experience.
“I think it’s important for our kids especially the police officers know that they are our friends and they help us,” said Catherine Piffero.
Putting aside the bad and enjoying a community event for all.
