Newarkers got a chance to interact with first responders Tuesday night as part of the annual National Night Out event on Academy Street. Newark and University of Delaware police officers, as well as firefighters from Aetna Hose, Hook and Ladder Company, demonstrated their skills and let attendees try out the equipment they use. The event also included free food, music, face painting, a magic show and a demonstration by a Delaware State Police K-9.
