The Morro Bay Police Department and Neighborhood Watch hosted the National Night Out on Aug. 3 at Cloisters Park. The whole community was invited to turn out and learn about their local emergency services departments — police, fire and harbor patrol — and to meet some of the new officers the department has hired over the past year-and-a-half. And it was a chance to have some fun too with games to play and a dunk tank that the chief of police courageously took a turn in the tank, as did the city manager.
But when several officers lined up to take a shot at dunking the chief, not one was able to hit the target, which made the chief no doubt very pleased. Attendees ate barbecued hot dogs, chips and sodas and enjoyed cake that Neighborhood Watch brought.
