Flint Township’s annual National Night Out celebration drew big crowds for fun and festivities on Aug. 3 at the Flint Township Police Department. Activities included a JAWS of Life demonstration from Flint Township firefighters, K-9 presentations from the Burton Police Department and a fire safety demonstration from the Clio and Flint Township fire departments. Flint Township Police Chief Kevin Salter and several of his officers also took turns in the dunk tank. Additionally, kids had the chance to win bicycles and hoverboards in a prize drawing and get their photos taken with officers and first responders.
