The Wiggins Police Department, in association with the Stone County Sheriff Department, will host Night Out Against Crime Monday at 5:30 at Blaylock Park.

"The program offers an opportunity for community members and law enforcement officers to get together and get to know one another," said WPD Chief Matt Barnett. "All too often, the only time citizens and officers interact is when the officers are responding to a call and performing their official duties."

Barnett has long stressed the need for open lines of communication between citizens and law enforcement.

"The citizens of any community are the best source of information for that community's law enforcement officers," he said. "Community members know what is going on in their neighborhoods better than anybody."

In addition to hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks, there will be live entertainment on hand.

Little Jimmy, a local Southern rock and blues band will take the Blaylock Park stage and provide music for all ages.
