Introduced in 1984, National Night Out is an evening dedicated to heightening awareness in neighborhoods and strengthening participation in local anti-crime efforts.
National Night Out is held from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Citizens are encouraged to set up block parties, get to know their neighbors, and enjoy the evening together. Members of the Danville Town Council, Police Chief Allan Shields, and police personnel will be out visiting block parties that have registered with the Danville Police Department.
“Danville is a great place to live and raise our families,” said Chief Allan Shields. “National Night Out helps to strengthen neighborhood spirit and the Police Department’s partnership with the community.”
Residents will have until the end of July to organize their own block parties and register with the Danville Police Department if they wish to have law enforcement personnel drop by and visit. To register, contact Crime Prevention Specialist Lindsay Ortiz at (925) 314-3717 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
