From the National Night Out website, "National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community."
On Tuesday, August 1st, Southern Maryland joined millions across the country with its own participation. 55 Communities in Charles County participated in the annual get together with each neighborhood having its own style. Neighborhoods in Waldorf had DJ's, live music and dancing, while many in La Plata featured moon bounces and raffles. Every neighborhood made sure to have plenty of food.
Fire trucks, police cruisers and EMT demonstrations were among the highlights for the children in Charles County. Matthew's son, Decker particularly enjoyed the ambulances and cotton candy.
Matthew Trollinger, of Trollinger Law was proud to be one of the La Plata volunteers serving hamburgers and hot dogs to Charles County police, firefighters and emergency responders.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to show our appreciation for everything public safety folks do for our community,” said Matt Trollinger, a member of the King’s Grant HOA’s safety committee. “They work so hard, it’s nice to be able to take the time to give them some props.”

* Many attorneys, insurance companies, and clients call an incident when someone was injured an “accident.” For this reason, our website uses this word. But an incident is not really an "accident" if there were rules in place to keep us all safe, yet someone chose not to follow those rules — and, as a result, someone else was hurt. When you speak with Trollinger Law, you'll find we talk instead in terms of "crashes," "collisions," etc.
