By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Holliston and Hopkinton Police Departments are among a number of towns in the state taking part tonight in a nationwide event designed to build partnerships, strengthen relationships between neighbors and law enforcement and raise crime prevention awareness across the nation. In Holliston, police officers will be on hand for the last summer concert event with cruisers and equipment on display in the park. Residents are being asked to bring a canned good for donation to the food pantry as they’ll try to fill a police cruiser with canned goods. In Hopkinton, at the Town Common, police will have interactive safety demonstrations with food, live music and plenty of kids activities.
Residents are also being asked to turn on their porch lights from 9-11pm tonight to show the town’s solidarity in preventing crimes.
