“This is a national event held in towns and cities across the country over several weeks,” Paso Robles Police Chief Damian Nord said, “Most agencies do something to interact with the public. It’s really just for us to introduce ourselves and interact with people.”

“Luckily, here in Paso Robles, we have phenomenal support from the community. We have a young department, so for the community to see some of the young officers, and they can interact with the people- we love it,” said Nord.family at night out

Mayor Steve Martin and some members of the city council also attended the event Wednesday. Like the police and other first responders, they mingled with the community and enjoyed a beautiful evening in the park.
