Kingston: Police Department Holds 32nd Annual ‘Police Night Out’

On Tuesday in Kingston, the Kingston Police Department held their 32nd annual Police Night Out at the Silver Lake Middle School.

There were pony rides, K9 demonstrations, police motorcycles, a squad team with all their gear, plus face painting and food from local restaurants including hot dogs, burgers, and chips.

The Kingston Police were joined by the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Dept. along with fellow police departments from around the area.

WATD’s Bob Gohl spoke with Plymouth County Sheriff Joe McDonald about some of the programs that his dept is doing to help out the community.

“We’re the first correctional facility in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to take some of the surplus space that we have and convert that over to civil drug treatment. So people who have committed civilly out of the courts can come to us for drug treatment,” said McDonald.

Police officials and the public all enjoyed this years event with all the exhibits and materials on public safety.
