Register your 2018 National Night Out block party

Posted on May 18, 2018 at 4:24 pm by Peter Ibrahim

The time has arrived to start planning for National Night Out 2018, and the Police Department looks forward to helping neighbors organize their own local community events. This year’s event is Tuesday, August 7, between 6-9 p.m. National Night Out is a nationwide community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and crime prevention. It enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. 

National Night Out is an opportunity to enjoy an evening of socializing, meeting and greeting your neighbors, police and City staff. This year will be similar to the last six years, where several neighborhoods will be hosting outdoor gatherings with block parties throughout Menlo Park. It is a great way to get out in the community, get to know your neighbors, increase crime prevention while enjoying a summer evening surrounded by friends and family. 

The City will waive the fee for a street closure if you host a National Night Out event. There are also many great giveaways for block parties that register early with the Police Department early. For more information or to host a block party, contact Community Services Officer Deanna Haley. You can register your block party online through the City’s National Night Out registration form.
