ALPHARETTA, Ga. -

Alpharetta Public Safety and the City of Milton have teamed up for this year's 2013 National Night Out event.

The event will be held at Willis Park in Alpharetta on August 6th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Wills Park Equestrian Center is located at 11915 Wills Road, Alpharetta, GA 30009.

This year's event will involve a state-of-the-art SWAT bus, an active SWAT scenario, police and fire vehicles, K-9 and firefighter demonstrations and a bounce house for the children.

Business partners Chick-fil-A, Target, Dairy Queen and Costco are donating products for this year's event. Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation will serve ice cream and volunteers will grill hamburgers and hot dogs.  

The National Night Out campaign started in 1984 as an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, establish community-police partnerships and to instill neighborhood camaraderie.

National Night Out now involves over 37 million people throughout the United States and other countries.

"This is a great event for our community," says Alpharetta Public Safety Director Gary George in a press release. "I invite everyone to the National Night Out event to watch your public safety professionals in action and to enjoy the festivities and food. This is a great event to attend with friends, family and children."

Some of the demonstrations involve the use of simulated blank gunfire and/or noise making devices.
