The Placerville Police Department and Target want you to celebrate summer with a free neighborhood block party!
Thanks to generous sponsors such as Save Mart, citizens across America can send a powerful message about neighborhood unity and safety. On Tuesday, August 7, we invite YOU to join us in sending a message to criminals, letting them know neighborhoods are getting organized and fighting back.
The National Association of Town Watch invites Placerville to participate in the 29th Annual National Night Out. More than 20 groups in many Placerville neighborhoods get together on blocks, in backyards, parks, schools, apartment buildings and at churches to build closer ties with neighbors – increasing community health and safety. There is no single project of any kind that involves more of our city’s residents. Last year, Placerville placed fourth in our category of under 15,000 residents!
Get to know local police officers; each officer visits block parties, bringing patrol cars, K-9s and more! Let’s heighten crime-prevention awareness, generate support for local anti-crime prevention programs and strengthen neighborhood spirit.
Placerville’s National Night Out is successful due to community support. In addition to neighborhood events, there are citywide events for all. The El Dorado County Main Library, Benham Park, M.O.R.E., and the Mountain Democrat invite all residents to participate.
National Night Out is more than a one-night celebration – it has become a major strategy for maintaining Placerville’s extensive Neighborhood Watch network.
