This year’s National Night Out (NNO) is Tuesday, August 6. NNO is a once-a-year opportunity for citizens, members of public safety, neighborhood watch groups, civic associations, businesses, community organizations and local officials to come together in solidarity and celebrate safe neighborhoods.
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, including:
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office will appear at several community events around the County. Check with your neighborhood association or local neighborhood Facebook page for details.
Neighborhood NNO parties have a wide range of family-friendly activities, including barbeques, ice cream socials and pool parties. Not only is NNO a fun night for all, it also heightens awareness about crime prevention and generates community support and participation in local anti-crime efforts.
Knowing your neighbors, local business owners and first responders is an important part of community safety. Combat isolation and crime – meet your neighbors!
