Join your neighborhood in celebrating National Night Out!
On Tuesday, August 1, neighborhoods throughout Roseville will come together to celebrate “National Night Out”. Many neighborhoods will be hosting a variety of special events, such as BBQs, ice cream socials, block parties, flashlight walks, contests and youth activities.
From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on August 1, residents in neighborhoods throughout Roseville and across the nation are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors.
National Night Out is celebrated in all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and U.S. military bases around the world. 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 that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
Locally, the Roseville Police, Fire, Electric, Community Services and Environmental Utilities Departments, and Target Stores representatives, as well as McGruff the Crime Dog and Sparky the Fire Dog will join together once again this year with neighborhood associations that are planning events for National Night Out.
Please call Pam Harlan of the Roseville Police Department Community Services Unit at 916) 774-5057 for more information or to register your neighborhood celebration.
