Help serve with HCSO in the month of July

Breaking News:


Our regularly scheduled August 3rd board meeting/presentation has been canceled. Instead, we would like to invite you to participate in your community National Night Out police-community partnership event scheduled for that same evening, Tuesday, August 3.


National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

NNO enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances. Fishers, Noblesville, Carmel and Westfield have this event in their calendar. Follow the links below:

Fishers - Fishers PD 5:30-7:30pm

FOOD: Chief will be grillin’
FRIENDS: FPD specialty teams, K9 Demos & Officers!
FUN: Face painting, balloon artists, & MORE!


Noblesville- Federal Hills Common 5-7pm

We will have several booths, bounce houses, race-a-cop, dunk tank, and food! Spend the evening interacting with the Noblesville Police Department and learn more about their agency!


Carmel – Carmel Gazebo 6-8pm

Police and Fire personnel will be there to visit, talk about safety and answer questions. Multiple vendors will also be present to share safety tips.

Westfield- “Jake Laird Community Day” at Quaker Park 5-8pm

This year, we’ve once again paired Jake Laird Community Day with National Night Out

Jake Laird Community Day usually includes: free food and popcorn, live music by Dave Miller, and various activities including bounce houses, face painting, a balloon artist, and a K9 demonstration. Officers will showcase the Department’s vehicles, equipment and programs. We will also be raffling off 10 bicycles and backpacks with school supplies this year!


Please let your friends and family know about National Night Out and invite them to come along. In support of law enforcement, we encourage you to wear your Academy shirt, Alumni shirt, or parade shirt. We look forward to seeing you!

We still have a couple of great opportunities where you have a chance to serve and help out the HCSO.
