GALLERY: Marana Police is on fire! Beats Northwest Fire District at annual Heroes Hoopfest

National Night Out and the second annual Heroes Hoopfest was hosted at Crossroads at Silverbell District Park on Friday, October 4.

National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that promotes Police-community partnerships as well as safety awareness for children, was a great success. Attendance ranged from 200-300 people. Fingerprints and photos were collected from 50 children who also received an ID card.

Marana Police Department and Northwest Fire District engaged in friendly competition with a game of basketball. Marana Police Department took home the win by 1 point with a score of 18:17. They'll get possession of the floating trophy until next year's competition. Congratulations Marana Police Department!
