Downtown Sylvester gathers for Night Out

Posted: Updated:

Folks in Worth County are getting to know the people who protect them a little better. Worth County law enforcement agencies teamed up to throw a big party in downtown Sylvester at their 2nd annual National Night Out against crime event.

The event included live music, free barbeque, and a school supplies giveaway.

"They get a chance to interact with the police officers and get to know them and become a little less afraid of a Police officer, so when they are in trouble they don't mind approaching a police officer," says Chief Wayne Jennings of Sylvester Police Department.
