The Munster Police Department would like to thank the many participants, volunteers, and generous sponsors who helped to make Munster's 27th Annual National Night Out Against Crime Celebration, held this past August 2nd, the best one yet.  This year's event enjoyed its highest participation ever from the public and was a very positive night for our community.  To view our full photo album, please click here.
