Once upon a time, we kept our porch lights on. We opened the door even if we didn’t know who rang the bell. And we could always leave the back door unlocked during the day.
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live.
The program takes place annually on the first Tuesday of August. Neighbors participate across thousands of communities from all 50 states, United States territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide. Neighborhoods across the nation will host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other various community events with safety demonstrations, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits.
National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community and provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Join us on August 6th at 5pm at the Rio Linda branch of the Sacramento Public Library (Rio Linda Elementary School) for –free– hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy and sno-cones. There will be music and dancing and neighbors and a lot of fun!
