On Tuesday, August 2, 2016, the 33rd Annual National Night Out will be taking place in communities and neighborhoods throughout Sacramento and the nation.

Over 60 neighborhoods throughout the city of Sacramento are planning events such as block parties, barbeques, ice cream socials, and other neighborhood social activities. These events allow neighbors a great opportunity to get to know each other and support local crime prevention efforts.

This nationwide effort promotes neighborhood involvement to help stem crime, strengthen partnerships between police and youth, community members and local organizations.  By participating in these events we believe it will generate support and increase participation in local neighborhood watch programs.

Sacramento Police officers, along with other city representatives, will be out visiting these neighborhood celebrations as a show of support for their efforts.

We hope you are able to participate in one of the many events taking place in your neighborhood!
