Green River observed National Night Out last weekend. Friday evening, Red White Buffalo hosted a special National Night Out event with demonstrations by local law enforcement agencies including the Green River Police Department, Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office, the Sweetwater County SWAT team and more. Green River residents hosted block parties on Saturday. GRPD officers visited the block parties and gave out awards and prizes.

"National Night Out is a national community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships, and enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community, and can provide a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances, giving people a chance to get to know their officers or ask questions," the GRPD explained.
