National Night Out

National Night Out Logo

Your neighborhood is invited to participate with many other neighborhoods across the country in celebration of National Night Out on

Tuesday evening, August 4, 2015.

National Night Out is a crime and drug prevention event that is sponsored nationally by the National Association of Town Watch and co-sponsored locally by the San Jose Police Department

This year is the thirty-second anniversary of this event with over 38 million people across the country expected to participate.

National Night Out is designed to:

  • Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness.
  • Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts.
  • Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships.
  • Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

Participating neighborhoods nationwide are asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police.  Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and BBQ’s to large block parties.  Some additional event ideas include, but are not limited to, ice cream socials, disaster preparedness, games, contests, discussing neighborhood issues or setting neighborhood goals, food or clothing donations, plan a clean-up day, beautify a common area, discuss or plan a Neighborhood Watch Program.  It’s up to you — be creative, have fun and CELEBRATE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!  For additional ideas or questions, contact the SJPD Crime Prevention Unit (408) 277-4133 and online at SJPD.ORG.
