National Night Out is on for 2021! The 38th Annual National Night Out takes place Tuesday, August 3, 2021, in communities and neighborhoods throughout Menlo Park, and the nation. This event gives neighbors an opportunity to join together in a combined effort to:
  • Increase crime prevention and awareness
  • Generate support and participation in local neighborhood watch programs
  • Strengthen the partnership between the community and police
  • Inform criminals that neighborhoods are connected and fighting back
National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.

This National Night Out, several Menlo Park neighborhoods will be hosting outdoor gatherings and block parties. Register your neighborhood event and get an opportunity to meet the police officers and staff who will stop by and visit each group (as time permits).

  • For all parties and events that involve street closures, an online special events permit form is required.
