National Night Out

Tuesday, August 6, 2019

National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in the community by holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention. It's a great approach to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a Menlo Park summer evening surrounded by friends and family!

National Association of Town Watch is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of various crime prevention programs including neighborhood watch groups, law enforcement agencies, state and regional crime prevention associations, businesses, civic groups, and individuals, devoted to safer communities. Since 1981, National Association of Town Watch continues to serve thousands of members across the nation.

National Night Out is an opportunity to enjoy an evening of socializing, meeting and greeting your neighbors, police and City staff. This year will be similar to the last seven years, where several neighborhoods will be hosting outdoor gatherings with block parties throughout Menlo Park. It is a great way to get out in the community, get to know your neighbors, increase crime prevention while enjoying a Menlo Park summer evening surrounded by friends and family.

The City of Menlo Park will be waiving the fee for a street closure if you host a National Night Out event. There are also many great give-away items for block parties that register with the Menlo Park Police Department early.
