National Night Out (NNO) is right around the corner on Tuesday, August 2nd and all neighborhoods and neighborhood associations are invited and encouraged to participate! This year marks the 33rd anniversary of this unique event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored by the San Jose Police Department. This event not only promotes neighborhood unity & partnership with local law enforcement, but also encourages people, neighborhood associations, and communities to sponsor & attend evening events with the goal of taking back the neighborhoods from crime, creating a safer night-time environment for citizens all around the city, while sending a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back!
Neighborhoods can celebrate NNO in many different ways. Whether you want to host a large event, a BBQ, ice cream social, or a small “get together” it’s easy to arrange and free to register. You can register by visiting the SJPD website here. The deadline to apply is July 21st! Please make sure to register but also send my office an email at: email@example.com and let us know your evening plans! My staff and I will be stopping by as many D1 events as possible so please be sure to let us know! Hope to see you all out there on August 2nd!
