Dresden’s first observance of ‘National Night Out’ a huge success

The City of Dresden hosted it’s first ever National Night Out event at Dresden Farmers Market, located in the Terry Oliver Plaza on the corner of Linden and Jefferson streets.

The crime and drug prevention event was sponsored by Dresden Police Department in partnership with the Weakley County Prevention Coalition.

Local citizens met with members of the Dresden Police Department who, along with other City employees, helped prepare and serve refreshments.

There were also booths set up by the Weakley County Prevention Coalition, Weakley County Health Department, and Dresden Fire Department, which offered free educational literature and other give-away items.

Additionally, free DNA testing, fingerprinting and voice recognition data were available for the children. According to Dresden resident Christopher Ellis, the service is provided by the Third Degree Masons Motorcycle Club in Big Sandy. He stated the information is placed on a DVD for the parents to keep in case it is ever needed.
