RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

Law enforcement officers said thanks to the people they serve Thursday night at J.F. Gregory City Park.

Rain and lightning ended the 7th annual National Night Out two hours early. Before that, though, kids climbed rock walls and gave it their best trying to dunk a police officer.

There was also free food and live music. The entire night was free for the community. 

"We have a really good relationship with our community, so we really want the opportunity to give back and show them that we appreciate everything that they do for us. The fact that we do have such a good relationship is a real bonus," said Sgt. Susan Willis with the Richmond Hill Police Department. 

City officials said they held their night out on a different night than most of the country because of a scheduling conflict with the venue.
