It will be at least one more year before National Night Out returns to Goldsboro. The Goldsboro Police Department has announced the National Night Out event scheduled for Tuesday evening, August 3, in Herman Park has been canceled. The cancellation is due to the inclement weather expected this week. The GPD says it looked at its inclement weather plan for moving National Night Out activities indoors into the Herman Park Center, but ultimately decided to not host the event indoors for the safety of the community. The Goldsboro P.D. says it will continue to support our community and find ways for the Goldsboro Police Department and community to come together, and they hope to see everyone at the next National Night Out event.
Elsewhere, the Kinston Police Department says its National Night Out has been rescheduled to August 9th from 5 – 8 PM in Pearson Park.
