Police departments across the Stateline Area once again are preparing for National Night Out events on Aug. 6, as departments look to build on strong community ties through a night of camaraderie.

In Beloit, a main kickoff National Night Out event will run from 5 - 7 p.m. at Riverside Park with the department's Cone With A Cop ice cream social, followed by citywide block parties as done in past years.

Block party application can be obtained by visiting the city's website at beloitwi.gov. Those looking to apply must do so by July 26.

In Janesville, the Janesville Police Department will host a family friendly event from 5 - 8 p.m. with free food, kid's games, police demonstrations and community booths. The event will be held at the department headquarters, 100 N. Jackson St.

For the second year running, the Roscoe Police Department will partner with the Harlem-Roscoe Fire Department for a National Night Out block party along Main Street from 6 - 8 p.m. The event will include car shows, live music, giveaways, food, crafts, games, a dunk tank and equipment demonstrations.

The South Beloit Police Department plans to host a National Night Out Event at the American Legion, 14879 Dorr Road. According to South Beloit Chief Adam Truman, the department will host its event from 5 - 7 p.m., with a free cookout as in past years. Police and fire equipment will be on display and prizes including bikes, school supplies and board games will be given away.

Rockton Chief Stephen Dickson said the department wasn't planning an event, but said the department is preparing for the annual Blue and BBQs event on September 1.

The Town of Beloit Police Department will join the Janesville Police Department and the Rock County Sheriff's Office for a joint event in Janesville, according to Chief Ron Northrop.
