Night out

The Inkster Police Department celebration of National Night Out earlier this month brought out local residents of all ages to enjoy multiple attractions including a wild animal show from Animal Safari which gave visitors, and police officers, a very close look at a 16-foot-long python, a kangaroo, an alligator and a woodchuck, among others exotic creatures. Inkster police officers and auxiliary officers spent time in a dunk-tank and troopers from the Michigan State Police let visitors take a look at the patrol cars and other equipment.

The guests enjoyed a wide array of free food, live music, a video game truck, bounce houses, henna artists and many other attractions in the parking lot at police headquarters. Officers said the event was a huge success and they are hoping for even more participation in the national event next year.
