National Night Out
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. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Millions of neighbors take part in National Night Out across thousands of communities from all fifty states.
We partner with local law enforcement, first responders and neighbors to organize, promote and sponsor our National Night Out celebration event.
We like National Night Out it because it is a real community involvement event, and it is an opportunity to talk in a relaxed atmosphere with local law enforcement and emergency first responders. It is a way to get to know your neighbors, your police force, and a great time for interaction.
Our event was born from our active involvement organizing Neighborhood Watch crime prevention in our local neighborhoods. The event is held in Martinez from 6 pm to 9 pm on the first Tuesday of August.
Several first responders attend the event, including Martinez Police Department, Contra Costa Fire Protection District, American Medical Response, East Bay Parks Regional Police, the California Highway Patrol, and the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff. A BBQ food truck, face painting for the kids, ice cream sandwiches (sold by a local Boy Scout pack) and free bicycle safety information for parents.
There is dancing to live music, BBQ food truck, beer tasting, ice cream treats from local Boy Scouts, safety demonstrations from local law enforcement agencies, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) disaster preparedness information, child ID program information, displays from local fire department and other emergency first-responders, face painting fun, and an animal petting zoo.
National Night Out is a community-police awareness-raising event in the U.S., held the first Tuesday of August. The event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada. The “Night” is meant to increase awareness about police programs in communities, such as drug prevention, town watch, neighborhood watch, and other anti-crime efforts.
The introduction of National Night Out, “America’s Night Out Against Crime,” in 1984 began an effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
