The Peachtree City Police Department is hosting a National Night Out event at the Kedron Village Target parking lot Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m.

The event will feature plenty of sights to fascinate children, with fire ladder trucks, helicopters, police vehicles and other public safety equipment on display. There will also be a scavenger hunt for children with prizes that will be claimed at businesses in the Kedron Village Shopping Center.

The event is a nationwide program to heighten crime prevention and awareness and also promote neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

Another goal is to send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back against crime.

Immediately following the event, police will spend some time the Wynnmeade subdivision with their lights activated in an effort to foster communications with residents in the area, according to police Lt. Mark Brown.
