BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – During the local National Night Out Against Crime event, which was held in Baton Rouge Tuesday (August 2) evening, local Police Chief Murphy Paul volunteered to get into a dunking booth, and it wasn’t long before he made a splash.

The fact that Chief Paul was such a good sport about being in the dunking booth made it even more enjoyable to watch.

But National Night Out Against Crime wasn’t all about watching prominent figures get dunked.

During the Baton Rouge Police Department-hosted event, participants enjoyed live music, free food, and other fun activities while learning about fire safety and crime prevention.

Some of the community members who showed up left with gifts and prizes.
