National Night Out

National Night Out is a community police awareness raising event in the United States, held the first Tuesday of August. This event has been held annually since 1984 and is sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch in the United States and Canada.


National Night Out is a national effort to promote involvement in crime prevention activities and community-police partnerships. It also sends a message to criminals letting them know that communities are organized and fighting back. The event began simply with neighbors turning on their porch lights and sitting in front of their homes. Our department has been holding a formal event at the Serramonte Shopping Center parking lot for the last few years.
