LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The final game at Lafayette's historic Loeb Stadium will be played Tuesday, and before the game kicks off, you can get a chance to hang out with the community and get to know local law enforcement.
Officers from across the Greater Lafayette area will be out front of the stadium with their cruisers for a meet-and-greet and photos prior to the game.
National Night Out is meant to bring the community together and raise awareness about police programs such as neighborhood watch and drug prevention in the community.
Lt. Matt Gard said it's full of fun.
"There's going to be a lot of displays during the game, a lot of activities between the innings," Gard said. "We just strongly encourage people to come out, participate, and have a good time."
Gard also said a few special guests will be arriving on the field in a helicopter.
The Aviators will also announce where they will host their home games in the 2020 season. National Night Out starts at 5:30 p.m. and first pitch is at 7 p.m.
