National Night Out
Tunica County Sheriff's Office hosted its night out against crime last night! This event is our Back to School Rally and National Night Out where we celebrate the end of summer and come together to give students the tools they need to succeed in their upcoming school year!
This event would not be possible without the dedication of time and effort by the employees at our office, who help execute the event from passing out t-shirts, cooking hamburgers and hotdogs, preparing sacks of food to pass out, hauling equipment, contacting vendors, and every other little detail that makes it a success.
We also could not do this event without our vendors and sponsors. We would like to recognize these individuals! They donated funds, supplies, backpacks, their time, and their encouragement to our event and all the students we served.
