Your neighborhood is invited to participate with many other neighborhoods across the country in celebration of National Night Out on Tuesday evening, August 7, 2018. Deadline for registration is July 27, 2018.

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 35th anniversary of National Night Out with over 38 million people across the country expected to participate.

National Night Out is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anti-crime efforts; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.

From 5 PM to 9 PM on August 7, 2018, residents in neighborhoods throughout San Jose and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend an evening outside with neighbors and police. Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and BBQs 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 is an opportunity to be creative, have fun and CELEBRATE YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!

The San Jose Police Department is a nationally registered participant of National Night Out. Registration is free and gives the police and city representatives an opportunity to attend local events as time and circumstances permit.
