Residents and communities throughout Sacramento on Tuesday, August 4, from 6 to 9:30 p.m. will join neighborhoods across the country for National Night Out, a campaign promoting police-community partnerships aimed at preventing crime.

Many neighborhoods throughout Sacramento will be hosting a variety of special events such as block parties, BBQs, youth activities, and more. These events are an opportunity for residents and law enforcement to get to know one another in a safe and positive environment. Sacramento law enforcement, along with city representatives, will be visiting neighborhood celebrations throughout the evening.

Communities that are engaged and have residents who communicate with one another are safer communities” said Sacramento Police Chief Sam Somers Jr.

“National Night Out is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbor and support local crime prevention efforts.”

A list of Sacramento neighborhood celebrations can be found at our National Night Out page.
