Registration Period Now Open

Berkeley, California (Thursday, June 16, 2016) - The Berkeley Police Department is sponsoring the City's National Night Out observance Tuesday, August 2, 2016. The registration period is now open. Community members are encouraged to complete the attached form and return it to the Police Department by Tuesday, July 26, 2016.  By completing and returning the form, our community can elect to have their event visited by members of the Police Department, Fire Department, and City Officials.   

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer, better place to live. 

In 2015, Citizens, law enforcement agencies, community groups, businesses, youth organizations and local, state and federal officials from 15,728 communities from all 50 states, U.S. territories and military bases worldwide joined forces to celebrate the “32 Annual National Night Out” (NNO). Last year the City of Berkeley had more than 100 neighborhood, business and community groups participate in the event.  

Typically events consist of neighbors getting together for a potluck or barbeque and some go as far as getting a jump house for the young ones and make it a block party. While some groups keep it simple and do an ice cream social and others just do hors d'oeuvres. Whatever your flavor, keep it fun and inviting for all of those in your neighborhood.  It is an excellent way to interact with and get to know your neighbors better. Get the word out about the celebration early to get people to participate in your event.  

If you have any questions regarding the event or registration, please contact Officer Brandon Smith at (510) 981-5773.  We hope to see you at National Night Out.
