RIVERSIDE - Law enforcement personnel in two cities will get to know the people they serve and show off their gear today during National Night Out events that mark the beginning of a series of planned mixers throughout Riverside County.

At 9 a.m., the Riverside Police Department will host a meet-and-greet outside the Target at 3333 Arlington Ave., featuring safety booths, a police mounted unit and refreshments.

Between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m., deputies from the sheriff's Canyon Lake, Menifee and Perris stations will be on hand for a safety festival at Wheatfield Park in Menifee, anticipated to draw around 6,000 people, according to organizers.

A K-9 unit will run through demonstrations, with the sheriff's mounted posse and county fire crews providing displays and offering attendees an opportunity to get hands-on with equipment.

On Tuesday, additional Night Out functions are scheduled between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m., at the following locations:

-- Arlanza Family Health Center, 8856 Arlington Ave., Riverside;

-- Bryant Park, Advertisement

Numerous other National Night Out events are planned to mark the 31st anniversary of "America's National Night Out Against Crime," spearheaded by the nonprofit National Association of Town Watch.

Night Out events began with simple gestures, such as residents keeping their porch lights on from dusk to dawn in a demonstration of neighborhood unity and crime-fighting spirit.

Since then, the National Night Out concept has expanded to include the implementation of voluntary watch programs and face-to-face meetings to improve relations and communication between law enforcement and community members.
