Would you like a visit from your police and Fire Departments?

Your neighborhood is invited to participate in National Night Out on Tuesday evening, August 5.

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

This year is the 31st anniversary of this event with over 37 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 prevention efforts
  •  Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships
  •  Send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back

Participating neighborhoods are asked to turn on outside lights, lock their doors, and spend the evening outside with their neighbors and police teams. 

Neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of events ranging from small potlucks and BBQ's to large block parties.  Some additional event ideas include, ice cream socials, 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 Roseville Police Department Community Services Unit at [email protected].

Registration is free and gives police and other city representatives an opportunity to attend local events as time and circumstances permit.  You do NOT have to be a current Neighborhood Watch neighborhood to participate.  National Night Out is for everyone! 

Registration deadline is Friday, July 11 so register today!
