Photos: Police host activities for civilians young and old

Bennett Stone, 3, points out the turret in the SWAT truck to Woods Cross police officer and SWAT team member Ian DuPape during the Night Out event at Hogan Park in Woods Cross on Monday. Woods Cross held its event the day before the national night of celebration. Youngsters and adults got a preview of Night Out, a national day to raise awareness about how community police do their jobs. At the gathering hosted by Woods Cross police, families got a first-hand look at how tough police K-9's are. They also had chance to munch on snow cones and sit in the pilot's seat of a medical helicopter. Others played games or simply took the opportunity to chat with officers.
