Tonight is National Night Out - an annual nationwide event that promotes law enforcement, community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, better places to live. It’s also intended to enhance relationships between neighbors and law enforcement under positive circumstances, and build a sense of community.
Across the nation, neighborhoods gather on the first Tuesday in August to host block parties, festivals, parades, cookouts and other community events with safety demos, seminars, youth events, visits from emergency personnel and exhibits. These events are planned and executed by neighborhood citizens, associations and those who care about the safety of their community.
Dozens of events are happening in neighborhoods across Sacramento County - here are just a few:
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department
will appear at several community events around the County. Check with your neighborhood association or local neighborhood Facebook page for details.
Knowing your neighbors, local business owners and first responders is an important part of community safety. Combat isolation and crime – meet your neighbors!
