Terre Haute National Night Out big success!


Terre Haute, Ind. (WTHI)- Hopefully you didn’t miss National Night Out last night. Terre Haute’s” event has received a lot of positive feedback on our WTHI Facebook page today.

News 10″ spoke with Terre Haute police organizers this afternoon and they say the estimated attendance was about 10 to 15 thousand people.That rough estimate comes from the amount of food consumed!

Lieutenant Jason Bretlinger with the Terre Haute Police Department says a large turn out of families is just what the organizations involved hoped for because they want to the “youth” to know who is there to keep the community safe.

“That’s how you fight crime, letting them know who is out there trying to protect them, letting them know who’s out there, the people they can go to you know if they have a problem. We go to our youth so that’s what we want to target is our youth,” Bretlinger said.
