Many law enforcement agencies across the Valley and country are preparing for the annual national night out including the Edinburg Police Department. They will be holding an event on Tuesday evening from 6 PM to 10 PM at the Municipal Park, which is free, with police interacting with the public. Officer Balde Gomez stated on the event, "This event represents that the community and the police working together. It's something that's done, businesses join us, different agencies join us that night. Again, I think it's a little bit of everything that's involved in the process of what makes our community great."
